Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement To A Company

Published by Admin on

The treaties are binding and what you say in them and approve things. What you do is important. Errors can easily cost thousands to correct. It is therefore worth using only rental contracts drawn up by experts. And it`s rarely cheap. Owner law expert Tessa Shepperson explains the law behind a company renting your residential property for the use of its employees or customers. The most common agreement signed in the rental market is a shorthold Insurance rental agreement. Inexperienced landlords sometimes try to use these agreements for business rentals. Landlords should keep in mind that an AST cannot be signed by a company and is only suitable for personal rents.

Living tenants are considered consumers. It goes without saying that a company that is an artificial person created for commercial purposes cannot use the various consumer laws that exist to protect living tenants. If you want to add or remove parts of the lease, you need to work with a legal expert to do so. Most companies need flexibility because of the movement of their foreign employees all over the world. A common break clause required for the tenant is a 60-day written termination, which can be served at any time after the first four months of the lease. If the owner is dissatisfied with this agreement, it may be possible to negotiate a so-called business break clause or a diplomatic break clause. This provides conditions for the clause that the tenant can only break if the occupier is relocated outside a 30-mile radius of the property or if he is no longer employed by the company. In this case, the tenant can give his consent in the first year, but may require that the break clause become unconditional at the beginning of the second term. However, it is customary for the resident to pay municipal taxes and benefits while the company pays the rent. The owner`s only concern is that the various costs are paid, and the company is fully responsible for any default of any of these costs.

This is a comprehensive agreement that is drawn to cover all the likely requirements of the owner, with regard to the provision of options and menus to allow you to easily decide what you want to include in your offer. Please note that our agreements are only suitable for real estate in England and Wales.
