Heathrow commercial property – our support services
There are numerous supporting business services to assist you as an airport occupier, whether you are setting up your operation or are an existing customer the following links can provide information with a broad number of questions you may have.
Renting space at the airport
If you would like to rent space at one of our airports, you will need to sign a tenancy agreement.
Questions and answers
- What kind of agreement will I have to sign?
- We have a standard agreement for customers who would like to take ramp and office accommodation at our airports. Heathrow Airport Limited will be introducing a new tenancy agreement. This new agreement has been approved by the Heathrow AOC Rents Group. It is prepared using everyday English (which has been approved by the Plain English Campaign) to make it clear and easy to understand.
- What information will be on the agreement?
- You will receive a short 3/4 page agreement which will set out the terms that are specific to your accommodation such as rent and service charge costs. The rest of the agreement is contained in the standard terms and conditions referred to below.
- How will I know what I am responsible for and what the landlord is responsible for?
- These responsibilities will be set out in the standard terms and conditions. View a sample agreement terms and conditions here. These will form part of the agreement you sign and have been agreed with the Airline Operators Committee. These terms and conditions are standard for ramp and office lettings at the airport, although we may need to amend them on a case by case basis.
- What does this mean for me if I am an existing customer?
- The new form of agreement, which has been agreed with the Airline Operators Committee, will be a much shorter document than your current agreement. It will set out only the terms specific to your accommodation.
- What does this mean if I want to renew my existing agreement?
- If your agreement is protected by the Landlord and Tenant Act 1954, you will be entitled to renew your agreement on the same format as your existing document. However you will have the chance to renew your agreement using the new type of standard agreement if you want to. If your existing document does not provide security of tenure under the Landlord and Tenant Act 1954 you may still have the opportunity to renew on the same terms as your existing agreement or be placed on the new plain English version. This will be reviewed on a case by case basis. For more information you will need to speak to your Property Management contact to discuss this further.
