Things to consider
This agreement offers the most independence, but also needs a bigger commitment from you. So youll need to put in a £5k security deposit or 25% of the annual rent, whichever is higher, plus pay your own rent (the yearly increase will be capped to the Retail Price Index) and cover your own legal fees. You will need to cover your own business insurance and also start thinking about your team; taking care of paying them and all other employment matters.
Were on-hand to offer guidance as you plan your business overheads, like business rates, annual service charge, Council Tax and utility bills. Also, start thinking about any internal repairs and decoration youd like to do to bring the place up to standard and consigning to an annual decorating fund. Not to mention what fixtures, fittings and glassware youll get for your pub.
Before we all sign the agreement and see you heading into a whole new life, youll just need to show us proof that youve had independent financial advice from an accountant and solicitor, as dictated by the Statutory Pub Code. And, of course, obtain your personal licence (which well help with) and complete your induction training.
