Course Agreements for Lease: The Next Step


Building on the materials in the morning seminar we will consider more complex cases such as major building works (including new-builds) by landlord, with fitting out works by tenant's contractor. We will work through some established precedents and identify the key problem areas, including:

  • Battle of the definitions -what are the JCT building contract definitions that are relevant and the possibility of conflict between documentation
  • 'Practical completion' & Statements of completion under the JCT
  • 'The Architect' vs the Employers Agent, their powers duties and responsibilities
  • 'Completion' - the date of actual PC vs the date of issue of the certificate.
  • Extensions of time & longstops
  • Effect on start of rent-free period, the term, rent review dates, etc.
  • right of the contractor to possession of the site under the JCT
  • Partial possession and sectional completion - access for fitting out
  • Variations and omissions
  • Dealing with conflicts - dispute resolution procedures
  • Measurement of areas - Net Internal Red Book definitions, tolerances, effect on rent
  • Tax & capital allowance aspects
  • LAD & Loss and expense claims by contractors
  • Effect on SDLT of early possession and effect of completion of the lease
  • Defects & Repairs - Liability for defects, repair, collateral warranty and service charge issues
This course is aimed at those wishing to build on a good working knowledge of basic agreement for lease issues ( whether or not arising out of the morning course), to provide a wider field of expertise to clients and as an update and refresher for the more experienced practitioner.
