Licence for Alteration

Leases will usually contain a requirement that prior to a tenant undertaking works to alter premises, landlord's approval must first be obtained.

For the tenant

We compile applications for the landlord's approval.

For the landlord

We assess applications, liaise with their lawyers and make recommendations and monitor the works.

Typically the assessment will include:

  • The impact on the structure, fabric and services
  • A check for statutory consents / approvals
  • The effect on other occupants
  • Consequences to property value
