Licences For Alterations

Licences For Alterations

A licence for alterations is a documented authorization from the landlord allowing the tenant to make changes to the premises they occupy. While any kind of written authorization should suffice, it is in everyone’s best interest to formalise the agreement through a licence for alterations deed.

Dealing with a licence for alteration can not only be stressful, but highly disruptive. Whether you are an individual, entrepreneur, company or partnership, the process of drafting a licence can be complex and time consuming. This is why it is important you are able to speak to legal experts who can provide all the guidance you need to emerge from a negotiation with the result you are after.

The team at Blackstone is highly experienced in dealing with all forms of contract law and we always work very closely with our clients to ensure we fully understand the issues faced by them or their business. By working together, we can ensure we devise a pragmatic solution that meets your commercial objectives.

Why is it necessary to obtain a licence for alterations?

Modern lengthy leases frequently stipulate that the landlord is responsible for the structural care of the facilities, with the tenant paying only for non-structural aspects such as plastering and floor coverings. This is not always the case, but in both cases, prior to making any changes, the landlord’s consent is normally required.

The lease terms are critical in determining what modifications are permissible without the landlord’s agreement. Frequently, any and all structural improvements require the landlord’s consent. External modifications, extensions, or alterations to utilities such as gas and electric are typically prohibited as well. Non-structural improvements are frequently authorised with the landlord’s prior approval, and the lease should indicate that the landlord’s consent should not be denied unreasonably.

Lease terms and formats will vary, and tenants should exercise caution to ensure that all modifications adhere to the lease’s provisions.
