This booklet is mainly about what tenants and landlords need to do to renew or end a business tenancy. So it is most likely to be of interest to tenants and landlords who already have a business lease. But it also covers the procedures for ‘contracting out’. This allows those negotiating a first time lease - the future landlord and tenant - to agree to exclude security of tenure. When such an agreement is in force, the tenant loses the right to renew the lease, so it is particularly important for soon-to-be tenants to get legal advice on this point.
If you are looking for business premises, there is a separate booklet available on this website explaining the called Thinking of Taking on Business Premises?
