Buying and selling Restaurants and takeaway

If you’ve found a Restaurant or Takeaway, you want to buy or lease then you’re probably feeling quite impatient to get started. Unfortunately, you really do need to take the time to get some advice from a solicitor on buying a Restaurant or Takeawy business. You’re risking too much by simply signing on the dotted line. The good news is we’ll make the process quick and painless. Because we’re experts at buying and leasing Restaurants and Takeaways, we only stick to the essentials.

Sound legal advice on the law relating to leasing a Restaurant or Takeaway will save you time and money. Here are some typical important issues that always need to be considered when buying a cafe:

Advice On Permitted Use When Buying A Cafe

Pay close attention to exactly what you can and cannot do in the cafe. Do you plan to sell any food? If so, are we talking takeaways, proper sit down restaurant like meals, or simply a snack? Will you sell alcohol? Whatever you want to do in the Property, make sure your lease lets you do it and there is a planning consent in place.

Legal Advice On A Restaurant or Takeaway Sit Out Licence

Ask yourself; can my customers sit on the street outside my Restaurant? It is often crucial for  Restaurant customers to be able to sit out in the street. Does the lease provide you with the right to do so? If not, then you may need to approach the Council to arrange permission for this.

Advice On Restaurant or Takeaway Trading Hours Permitted By The Lease

Some landlords are keen to restrict trading hours to avoid upsetting neighbours or residential tenants in a development or simply because it makes management of the building/shopping centre easier. Running a Restaurant or Takeaway is very different from having a clothes shop or an office. Flexible hours can be crucial. It’s not unusual for Restaurant or Takeaway to be open all the hours, including weekends.

What Alterations Can I Make To The Restaurant or Takeaway Premises?

When our clients buy a Restaurant or Takeaway they will normally want to make some alterations to the place. These can range from serious fit out works involving the installation of a commercial kitchen with flues to simply putting up a neon sign outside. Whatever changes you’re planning, chances are you will need the landlord and/or the Council to approve some of them. It is vital to sort these issues out before signing the lease or contract. I believe sound legal advice on negotiating Restaurant or Takeaway lease terms is crucial.
