Licence for Pop-Up Charity Shop in Multi-Let Building

Short Term Licence for a Charity to Occupy “Pop-Up” Shop in Shopping Centre

PROP.CHA.15

This Short Term Licence for a Charity to Occupy “Pop-Up” Shop in Shopping Centre should be used where the owner of the shopping centre wishes to allow a Charity to occupy shop 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 particular type of goods or 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 these or other shop premises on a lease to run a retail business on an ongoing basis. The Licence is suitable for making available any retail premises situated within a Shopping Centre or other multi-let building with shared facilities.

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, Licensor’s Building and Common Parts make optional reference to a plan. It is recommended that a plan is included, showing these areas in different colours, so that the 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 Shopping Centre. 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.

Clauses 3.6 and 3.7 optionally require the Licensee to pay business rates and utilities charges but these clauses can be deleted if the Licensee is to pay an all-inclusive licence fee.

Clause 4 contains a covenant by the Licensor to allow the Licensee to access the Premises via the common parts of the Shopping Centre. 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.
