Licence to underlet - commercial property

Before tenants can sublet their premises the consent of the landlord is usually required. This is typically so the landlord can retain an element of control over the property and the identity of the undertenant.

It is common practice for landlords to document their consent in the form of a formal licence to sublet. It is important to seek advice if you are required to enter into a licence to sublet so you are fully understanding of the obligations contained within the document and your rights and responsibilities resulting from this.

Underlet legal advice

Stephensons have extensive experience acting on behalf of landlords, tenants and undertenants in relation to licences to sublet and our team can guide you through the process from start to finish.

Please be aware, there are complex rules and time limits regarding applications by tenants requesting consent to sublet and as such, before applying it is best to consult independent legal advice. Landlords who receive applications for consent must also act quickly and within a reasonable amount of time. We would also recommend that landlords seek independent legal advice as soon as they receive notification of an application so as to avoid any issues.

If you need assistance with a licence to sublet please do not hesitate to contact the commercial property team.
