About this document

This document is exclusively for the use of a director of a company who effectively works from home and wants to set up provision for claiming home expenses against taxable income.

This is not a lease, which creates an interest in land, but a mere license. With a license, the property owner is effectively saying “OK, you can occupy my property for a while, but I can interrupt at any time and ask you to leave.” To a property owner, the advantage of a license is that in certain circumstances, it is easier to exercise control over licensees than over tenants. A further advantage is that the swirling mists and high costs of solicitors can be avoided. However, since Net Lawman now provides a “real” lease at a modest price, it is now possible to have “the real thing” without the high cost of legal fees.

This property licence includes minimal and usual provisions in simple format. It is suitable for a suite of any type of offices, for any business purpose.

What Our Clients Say
  • "Loved it mate, was in somewhat bitter dispute with ex partner, loads of expensive meetings nothing sorted. Got your form, edited it up sent it over -bang, signed, sealed and delivered in 10 mins. Excellent"

    Ken Warren, Director The Golden Bough
  • "Net Lawman's legal templates are always our first option when approaching new risk management initiatives for both clients & ourselves; because paying over priced fees for lawyers to create standard documents is now an outdated process.

    We have successfully prevented many risks before they occur via the use of Net Lawman's templates for; NDA / Confidentiality, Cyber Risk, Media Release, Sales/Supplier Contracts and many others. If you like saving money without reducing quality, then use Net Lawman"
