Deciding whether to use or agree to a lease or a licence is an important decision. There are important differences, differences Burn & Co can advise you on.
Should you choose a licence or a lease? The answer rather depends. Features to be clear about include the presence of regular periodic payments and a specific end-date to the agreement. There are benefits and obligations to both. Being clear on what these are beforehand is important. Sign the wrong agreement and you may find your rights are not protected or your business is affected.
Burn& Co advises business on setting up the right agreement for them. Drafting a lease or a licence, explaining the terms, obligations and liabilities is done free from legal jargon. Our expert lawyers work with you, deal with any problems and make sure costs, timescales and likely outcomes are clear.

Burn and Co were recommended to us complete the drafting of a new Lease for a long term tenant in our family business property. They kept in regular contact with us by both phone and email and we have been very impressed with the work undertaken and negotiations made. We would not hesitate to recommend Burn and Co to friends and business associates.

We recently acquired a block of nine flats at auction with the intention of refurbishing and subsequently selling them off individually. Burn and Co handled the purchase, and all the aspects required leading to the sale, including some light and access disputes with the local Council. They handled the drafting of a new master lease, a new right of way which we required, and the creation of the management limited company, as well as the subsequent sales of the flats. This was a relatively complex undertaking which has been handled very efficiently, and we would have no hesitation in using and recommending Burn and Co in the future.
