Course Agreements for Lease: The Next Step


Building on the materials in the morning seminar this course considers 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 - JCT building contract definitions that are relevant and the possibility of conflict between documentation
  • 'Practical completion' and statements of completion under the JCT
  • 'The architect' vs the employer's agent, their powers, duties and responsibilities
  • 'Completion' - the date of actual PC vs the date of issue of the certificate
  • Extensions of time and 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 and capital allowance aspects
  • Liquidated and ascertained damages (LADs) and loss and expense claims by contractors
  • Effect on SDLT of early possession and effect of completion of the lease
  • Defects and 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)and to provide a wider field of expertise to clients. It will also serve as an update and refresher for the more experienced practitioner.
