Pop-Up and Meanwhile Leases

Course Overview

The course will be of interest to landlord and tenant practitioners and will consider the benefits offered by pop-up and meanwhile leases, the model forms of lease that have been produced, the relatively ‘light’ regime that applies, and the issues that both landlord and tenant need to bear in mind.

There is no doubt that an empty property on the high street is a wasted economic opportunity which town centres can ill afford in such turbulent economic times.In response, pop-up and meanwhile leases are becoming increasingly common as landlords are now permitted to temporarily change the use of empty shops in order to encourage temporary or ‘pop-up’ shops which utilise vacant high street premises until a permanent tenant can be found.
