Different Types of Leases

Our agreements also form an integral part of the reason why so many licensees choose Trust Inns as their business partner.

We offer a range of agreements ranging from 1, 3 and 10 year leases to suit all level of pub business operators.  We currently have two types of lease agreement available; the Trust Inns’ Business Development Lease (3 year and 10 year terms), and a 1 year Tenancy Agreement.

Our 1 year Tenancy Agreement is ideal for those licensees who may be uncertain about the commitment of taking on a pub for the long term.  It enables new tenants to “stick their toe in the water” with all the benefits of a longer term agreement.

With all Trust Inns’ tenancy and lease agreements you must read the lease agreement documentation for yourself.  We strongly recommend that you take professional advice to ensure you are fully aware of and understand the responsibilities, requirements and the contract that you are about to enter into.

A summary of the key benefits of each agreement is below.  Trust Inns would talk you through the relevant agreement in more detail upon application.
