We were subleasing a building we tenant and your agreement made it so easy to do. Both parties were happy with it.

Concern that there would be more complexity than necessary but decided to buy as the document was the most specific to our requirements that was available at a reasonable price and without having to sign up to a continual marketing bombardment.
Have not yet used the document but it appears to be flexible and suitable for the purpose intended. If asked would recommend - not in the habit of giving unsolicited recommendations.

I’m a girl and the Head Lease holder. Found it annoying that the wording was often male gender not neutral. Price was okay. The guide is good. Thank you.

We often debate whether to change "he" to "he or she", "his" to "his or her" etc. We have a mixed-gender legal team.

In information articles, we try and use both genders, for example, "he or she might wish to change his or her lease", but in a legal document, this would be too wordy. Using "they" and "their" is grammatically incorrect, even if it is accepted by more people.

We think that the best solution is to follow the standard legal practice of using the masculine if the genders of the parties aren't known, and adding a paragraph to the definitions in the agreement that references to one gender include the other.

If we're reviewing a document for a client, and we know that one party is female, we will change "him" to "her" where appropriate.

What I was looking for was a one page document for a simple lease of a part building. Your form as extremely comprehensive but had way to much detail for my requirements.

We write short documents where possible, but in a situation such as subletting, there are certain things that a landlord will want to be included. The tenant is in the more advantageous position to start because he or she has a lot of rights under statutory law. This agreement is designed to balance out some of those rights, and to protect the landlord as much as possible.
