Im looking to take on a premises with a company let lease

Customer Question

I'm looking to take on a premises with a company let lease agreement instead of commercial lease. Can I still trade on a company let agreement and what are the key differences?
i'm registered as a limited company and need to see clients on the premises.

many thanks

You need to check this with the landlord as company let agreements are usually for residential properties, not premises for trading in.

A company let is where a company is the tenant of a residential property instead of an individual person. A commercial lease is a lease for business premises where trade is carried out.

You should get a commercial lease rather than a company let.

May I help further?

Thank you for your answer, just to double check:

I'm looking to rent a flat with no shop front to be used as a hairdressing salon.

Am I right in thinking that I need a commercial lease for this as the company let is more for work/live use,

and I can not trade on the company let due to the lease agreement?

Yes, correct.

You need a commercial lease.
