Legal Advice On Buying Or Selling A Coffee Shop

Solicitor Advises On Unfair Coffee Shop Lease Terms

Christopher Bartlett was the solicitor negotiating the lease terms for a coffee shop. A well known city centre coffee shop had some major fit out works planned for the café they were going to rent. The landlord wanted them to agree that if he gave them notice at any time they would have to remove those works to let the landlord refurbish the building. We helped our client remove these potentially lethal clauses from the document. Now the works are finished, the place looks great and our client knows that at least it will stay looking that way whilst they’re there!

The owner of popular coffee shop in Kingston-Upon-Thames was asked to sign where she had the right to seat her customers outside. So far so good. Unfortunately, the lease gave the landlord the right (elsewhere in the lease) to end that right on a whim. Imagine if he did that at the height of summer! It could have ruined the business. Needless to say, we advised our client to put her foot down until the landlord agreed to remove the offending wording.
