About this commercial property licence agreement

This agreement creates a licence to occupy commercial premises, not a lease. The difference is important because a lease creates an interest in land and gives the tenant additional rights - particularly with respect to stay in the property when the lease term expires (security of tenure). See our article business lease or licence explaining the difference.

This property licence includes minimal and usual provisions in simple format, specifically to avoid it being interpreted as a lease.

The document might be used to:

  • let spare office rooms, unused workshops or warehouse space to another business
  • bring in another trader on a shop floor
  • rent office space on a short term, flexible basis, for example as 'incubator' space for start-up businesses
  • let a parcel of spare land to another business to store vehicles or machinery

This document has been carefully drawn so as to avoid being interpreted as a lease under the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954.
