Who can use this Licence for Alterations?
This licence is designed for use by a landlord and tenant under a Lease when the tenant wishes to make some additions or alterations to the building, usually of a structural nature.
What are the main issues to consider when dealing with alterations under a lease?
The Lease may require the landlord’s consent for the intended works or it may impose an absolute prohibition on any works being carried out. This Licence deals with each situation.
The Landlord will obviously want to consider very carefully whether or not to give permission for works to be carried – e.g.:
- Will the works improve the property in the long term?
- Is the alteration going to affect the value of the property?
- Will the Landlord be able to re-let the property more easily when the tenant leaves?
When the landlord is not the freehold owner, the lease will usually require the consent of the owner of the freehold for any alterations.
If the property is mortgaged by the landlord or if the Lease is mortgaged by the tenant, the consent of the lender may also be required for the carrying out of the works.
Where the Lease is registered at the Land Registry, this Licence will need to be registered as well.
