Obtaining or Granting a Licence to Sub-Let

If you are a commercial tenant, for example the leaseholder of a shop or warehouse unit, you can create an underlease that allows to sub-let the property to a new tenant. You would then effectively become the new tenant’s landlord, whilst remaining a tenant under the terms of your existing lease.

However, before you do this you must obtain the formal consent of your landlord, known as a licence to sub-let. This will only be granted if your landlord is satisfied with the references provided by the new tenant.

If you are a landlord and have been contacted by your tenant regarding a licence to sub-let, contact our experienced team of commercial solicitors for legal advice and guidance. We will handle all the paperwork on your behalf and make sure your business interests are protected.
