Under many Lease arrangements, it is necessary for a tenant to obtain the consent of a landlord prior to carrying out any alterations or refurbishment of a leasehold premises. Often a Lease will set out the tenant’s obligations to conform to all current planning and development requirements. In acting on behalf of landlords we can ensure that the proposals planned by a tenant conform to all necessary statutory requirements and that the tenant will undertake to comply with their repairing obligations.
In this area our experience also allows us to act on behalf of tenants where they wish to carryout alterations to a premises. As changes will often require compliance with statutory regulations and planning etc. we are in a position to make all necessary applications to Local Authorities for Change of Use, Planning and Fire Safety certification and formally obtain landlord’s consent to carryout works.
