FAQ's

How long are your leases?

Our standard leases are for terms of 2 years, although there is normally a mid term break option in the tenants favour, exercisable upon the service of at least 3 months written notice. Longer leases are available if required.

How do I pay my rent?

Rent is paid monthly in advance by standing order.

Do you charge vat?

Yes. Tenterfields Business Park is a vat registered site and all charges made by the landlord will be subject to vat at the prevailing rate.

Do you require a bond?

We require a bond of £250 which is refundable at the end of the lease provided that all utility charges (and other charges) have been paid.

Do you make an administration charge for preparing the lease?

No. All the paperwork is prepared at our cost?

How long will it take for me to be in occupation?

Once we have agreed terms it will then take approximately 48 hours for your credit verification check to be processed and from this point it normally takes around a week for the paper work to be produced for signature. Upon signature of the documents you will be given the unit key and all other relevant access information.

How much will the Credit Verification check cost me?

The tenant verification check is carried out by an independent company who will charge you £48 plus vat.

As a tenant are there any restrictions when I can gain access to site?

As one of our tenants you will be able to gain access 24/7. However, outside of normal business hours you will be responsible for relocking the main gate to the site upon each vehicle movement. Also we ask that you notify us of any scheduled visits to site at particularly unsociable hours so that our onsite resident staff are aware. The only time access may be restricted is in the event of a major Health & Safety alert.

What is the cost of renting a shipping container?

For a short term let of only a few months we charge the equivalent of £25 per week plus vat. However, for a longer term committment discounted rates are available. Give us a call to discuss this.

Are there any restrictions on the use of your shipping containers?

Our shipping containers are for storage purposes only. They are not intended as a base from which to run a business.
