Verbal agreements

Renting a property on a commercial basis without a lease is not frequently advised, as without a written lease the exact terms of the contract are not declared or legally binding.

However, depending on the nature of a specific renting agreement, such as how it started, how long it has been going on for, the tenant may still have a number of rights under the Landlord and Tenants Act 1954.

If there is no written lease but a tenant is renting a commercial property then their agreement with their landlord is normally classed as a verbal or oral lease. The key issue with verbal lease agreements is the difficulty in enforcing them should a dispute arise.

A key benefit of verbal leases however is the ease at which the parties can modify the lease on short notice. Simply, a verbal agreement is as legally binding as a written Tenancy Agreement.

As soon as a landlord allows access into the property and accepts rental payment, a verbal contract is formed.

If you find that you do not have a tenancy agreement and your tenants are causing you problems which warrant their eviction, despite the lack of tenancy agreement we are still able to find a quick and legal eviction resolution for you.

We can deal with the eviction process on your behalf in the event that you do not have tenants who will co-operate with you, as many landlords do not feel comfortable discussing these matters directly with the tenant.
