Events have conspired to make these difficult times for trading, and it has never been more important to protect your assets, especially if you own a licensed premises.
The licence which allows that venue to trade is of paramount importance and there are a number of different scenarios which could affect the status quo: tenants becoming insolvent, licences being varied and becoming less effective, even losing licences through Review proceedings.
The absolute priority is to ensure that your position is protected. Complete Licensing can advise at Heads of Terms stage with potential tenants right through to ensuring an outgoing tenant provides all necessary support to facilitate the transfer of the Premises Licence to you or a preferred third-party – and everything in between.
We also have considerable experience in obtaining ‘shadow’ licences for our landlord clients.
