In 2016, the government introduced the Statutory Pubs Code, which applies to all advertising companies in England, Scotland and Wales that own more than 500 linked pubs. The code provides that all potential tenants must provide pre-entry awareness training so that they fully understand the impact of bar agreements. The majority of companies holding ads with fewer than 500 linked pubs have also signed the England, Scotland & Wales Tenanted and Leased Codes of Practice and many companies have their own individual company codes, which define their specific processes and procedures in how they will act within the meaning of those codes. Some are posted on the company`s websites or you can request a copy during the job interview. There are a number of advantages to using a lease agreement as desired. As mentioned above, it is easier for a landlord to repossess, although it is never easy for housing and one should always get legal advice. Simple repossession is very dangerous in such circumstances and can result in both criminal and significant civil penalties. On the other hand, if the lessor can exercise control (usually living or occupying the same premises or providing administrative or cleaning services) and the tenant cannot exclude all the others (tenants and office users share facilities), there is a licensing situation, even if the agreement states that it is a rental agreement. In the case of a commercial lease, the lessor has always had the traditional recourse of forfeiture when a tenant is contrary to the contract.
