I believe a commercial lease over 7 years has to be registered but does an Agreement for Lease (where the condition that would start the lease has not yet occurred) have to be registered?


Thanks for your question. I will try to help.

There is no legal obligation to register an Agreement for Lease. However, if there is likely to be a sufficiently long period of time between the agreement for lease and the completion of the lease itself then it is generally advisable for the proposed tenant to apply for a notice against the freehold title noting the agreement itself. However, again this is not a legal obligation as such and is more a matter of best practice.
