Licence for Alterations

A Licence for Alterations is a legal document, identifying and recording tenant obligations when adapting leasehold property including reinstatement obligations at lease expiry.

When acting for tenants applying for licences, we manage the collation and submission of relevant documents and drawings and develop agreement schedules and specifications for the works.

We provide life-cycle advice to tenants to enable them to fully consider and understand the implications of their proposals, both at implementation and at lease expiry when reinstatement may be required by the landlord

When acting on behalf of landlords, Trident review tenants’ proposed works to ensure that your tenure is not negatively affected. We also check that all statutory implications have been considered, including the effect on a property’s EPC rating. Trident will also consider the practical aspects of tenants’ alterations, on which we can advise if needed.

With unparalleled understanding of the construction process and landlord and tenant relationships, Trident takes a practical approach to reducing risks and enhancing opportunities. Furthermore, we can ensure that all statutory consents are acknowledged, warranties provided for, variations documented and works carried out to the highest standard.

Licence issues often create disputes between the landlord and tenant, but we significantly reduce the scope for dispute with our established expertise in dilapidation matters, combined with our legal knowledge.
