Licence for Pop-Up Charity Retail Space

Short Term Licence for Charity to Use “Pop-Up” Retail Space in a Shop or Other Building

PROP.CHA.13

This Short Term Licence for Charity to Use “Pop-Up” Retail Space in a Shop or Other Building should be used where the owner or tenant of a shop or other building wishes to allow a Charity to occupy part of the premises on a short-term basis to operate a retail business. This could allow the Charity to trade for a short period (e.g. selling Christmas cards or gifts in the run up to Christmas) to raise additional money for the Charity. Alternatively, it could allow the Charity to try selling a variety of new and/or secondhand products (i.e. to supplement its other fundraising activities) for a short period, and then, if the Charity is successful, it could later take on its own premises to run such a business on an ongoing basis. 

The Licence is suitable for making retail space available to a Charity in a shop, supermarket, leisure centre or other building with spare space, subject to planning law requirements.

Before using this or any of the other two “Pop-Up” licences in this subfolder, you should read the accompanying guidance note in this subfolder on use of any of the "Pop-Up" Licences.

Clause 1 contains the definitions. The definitions of Premises and Licensor’s Building make optional reference to a plan. It is recommended that a plan is included, showing these areas edged in different colours, so that arrangements on the ground are clear.

Clause 2 is the grant of the Licence.

Clause 3 contains the Licensee’s covenants. These cover payment of the licence fee and other outgoings, use, alterations and the Licensor’s right of entry. There is a covenant to observe any regulations made by the Licensor for the Licensor’s Building. This gives the Licensor the opportunity to set out rules to supplement the covenants in the Licence. For an example see our template Regulations for Occupiers of a Multi-Let Building.

Clause 4 contains a covenant by the Licensor to allow the Licensee to access the Premises via the Licensor’s Building. There are also provisions regarding the provision of toilet facilities and other services – these should be adapted as required.

Clause 5 deals with termination of the licence and includes optional termination rights (break clauses) for both parties.

Clause 6 contains standard clauses including a provision regarding service of notices.

Optional phrases / clauses are enclosed in square brackets. These should be read carefully and selected so as to be compatible with one another. Unused options should be removed from the document.
