Guidance for commercial tenants

The 'Guide to tenants', answers the most frequently asked questions that tenants have. It covers a tenants role and responsibilities and those of Calderdale Council asĀ the landlord. For more information, see: PDFGuide to tenants: occupation of Calderdale Council commercial premises [PDF 351KB]

The guide includes:

  • repairing responsibilities;
  • lease assignment / sub-letting;
  • payment of rent;
  • use of premises;
  • alterations and improvements;
  • lease expiry;
  • insurance;
  • health and safety requirements;
  • additional tenant responsibilities;
  • when to get professional advice; and
  • specific premises information for the Borough market, Halifax.

The guide refers to a number of common features that you may find in our business agreements. However, it is a general guide and does not override the terms of your own particular lease with the Council.

It should not, in any way, be consideredĀ a substitute for independent professional advice. We strongly recommend you obtain appropriate independent legal advice.
