About this letting agreement
This is a contractual tenancy agreement, not an assured shorthold.
It is for letting a house or flat to a company and not to an individual. The company can use the property to house its employees, visitors or anyone else.
The company is not a protected tenant, so you are in far stronger control than under an AST. The landlord has no obligation whatever to the occupier. Conversely, it is for the company to satisfy all the usual tenant’s covenants.
Of course you must stick to your contracted deal. What is more, you cannot push out a residential occupier ruthlessly, but if things go wrong it is easier to obtain possession that for a letting direct to the human occupier.
This is a full agreement drawn to cover all the likely requirements of the landlord, in terms providing options and menus to make it easy for you to decide what you want to include in your deal.
Everything is negotiable, including: the rent amount, when paid, how paid, termination, break clause, good behaviour, deposit against bad behaviour.
You can use this agreement for a lease of any length, but we advise you to keep it short (one or two years maximum) because you do not have to pay stamp duty land tax on a lease for seven years or less, nor do you have to register it at the Land Registry.
*But certain high value leases under seven years may be chargeable to SDLT.
