About this document
The most common use for this document is to let a garage or lock-up. However, it is equally suitable for any other small building such as a shed or greenhouse.
It protects the interest of the landlord foremost, but allows room for the provisions to be changed if the tenant negotiates different terms.
Why a license agreement and not a lease
If your tenant will use your property in connection with his or her business in any way, then it is essential that you use a lease and not this licence. We explain why in our article on whether to use a lease or a licence agreement.
A licence to occupy can be for any time period, but we strongly recommend a short period, like 6 months, so that you have the opportunity to say no to renewal rather than be the one to terminate a longer period. As well as giving greater control, it will also allow new terms such as rent increases to be agreed on a more frequent basis.
This is a simple but complete document written in plain English. It provides all you need to create a licence suitable for the purpose, including a menu of suggested licensee’s "promises" setting out what he may and may not do.
This document was written by a solicitor for Net Lawman. It complies with current English law.

- I wanted to quickly get an agreement to use to rent out my garage.
- It was good to be able to see a sample document before buying.
- The document was written in plain english and was no longer than it needed to be.
- The price was good
- The accompanying information was very useful; it's important to know what could be changed, and advice on how to add or change clauses gave confidence that the document would not accidentally be invalidated by me.
- It did the job well - this was exactly what I was looking for.
