Property Rents and Payments
General terms and conditions
Our premises are let on commercial terms.
Leases are usually for a minimum of a year with three months notice to quit, although longer terms are available by negotiation. The Council requires the incoming tenant to bear its reasonable legal and surveyors fees which are approximately £300.
We require the payment of the appropriate deposit before occupation of the unit takes place. The deposit will be refunded on termination of the lease provided all the covenants in the lease have been complied with by the tenant, and all keys are returned on the termination date.
