Consents to Alterations
During the term of a lease a tenant is likely to want to make alterations to the interior of the premises. Commercial leases tend to prohibit the making of alterations without the landlord’s consent. The landlord’s consent is usually given by way of a formal Licence to Alter.
In this folder we have Heads of Terms for Alterations, Letters for the Landlord to send to the Tenant and a selection of Licence to Alter templates. The licences contain detailed provisions concerning good workmanship, timescale and reinstatement, which are designed to protect the value of the landlord’s investment.
Landlords should refer to the Protocol for Applications for Consent to Carry out Alterations when handling applications for consent to alter premises. The Protocol can be found at http://www.propertyprotocols.co.uk. Compliance with the Protocol is voluntary but the Protocol has broad support in the commercial property sector. Our documents are designed to aid compliance with the Protocol.
Other documents may be needed during the term of a lease. A wide variety of documents can be found in our Managing the Letting, Breaches of the Lease, Assignments and Underletting folders.
