Rent Demand for Commercial Lease
This Rent Demand for Commercial Lease should be used to demand rent from a business tenant.
Although the lease may state that rent is payable whether or not a demand is sent, in practice it is helpful to issue rent demands. A demand will serve to remind a tenant that the rent needs to be paid and some organisations’ finance departments will refuse to pay rent unless an invoice is received.
If VAT is chargeable on the rent (which will be the case if the landlord has made a VAT election in respect of the property) the tenant will also need to be provided with a VAT invoice.
This Rent Demand is not a VAT invoice. Landlords often send a rent demand when the rent is due and then a receipted VAT invoice after the rent has been paid. This Rent Demand contains fields for the landlord’s and tenant’s details, the address of the property, the tenant’s reference number and invoice number. The amount(s) owing should be entered in the table. The landlord’s bank account details should be included.
Optional phrases / clauses are enclosed in square brackets. These should be read carefully and selected so as to be compatible with one another.
