the salon i rent a room in is in the process of changing hands, the new owners are planning to try and share my space with another nail technician. as i am paying rent for that room and do not want to share it as it will affect my business where do i stand legally?
Hi thank you for your question, I will assist you with this.
Do you have a written agreement with the current owner and is your space defined in this as being for your exclusive use?
no no written agreement but we can get one written up before the salon is signed over to the new owners. will this make a difference?
How long have you been there? what are the current terms and conditions? Have you asked why the new owner considers it appropriate for you to share when you rent the room/space? What have they said?
Please provide as much information as possible.
i have been there since march this year and the current terms and conditions were just a verbal agreement between me and the current owner that i will rent the whole room for £60 a week. i have spoken to the current owner who is going to ask her solicitor if it is a good idea for her to get a written agreement made up today considering she is signing over the salon in the next week or so.
