Since the Landlord & Tenant (Licensed Premises) Act 1990, Public Houses are granted “security of tenure”, i.e. a right to a new lease at the expiry of the existing lease.
This can prove to be a confusing time to tenants without the benefit of professional advice, as the failure to act can have detrimental effects.
MCS can provide advice and deal with the necessary notices to ensure that your interested are protected and that matters are dealt with in a timely fashion.
A quick overview of the notices and when they need to be served as well as the procedures that need to be followed are detailed below;
Tenants also have the right to serve a Section 26 notice if a landlord fails to serve a s25, as the landlord may wish you to hold over on a higher rent than that which they could expect to receive in the current market. Again these have to be served within specific timescales.
An alternative to the courts when negotiations have failed is the dispute resolution service know as PACT (Professional Arbitration on Court Terms) which provides a more cost effective and flexible system. More information on PACT can be found by following the link at the top of the page or click here.
