The Star of the Wedding

The wedding I went to last month was one for the ages. The bride and groom hired a magician from https://nebmagic.com/wedding-magician-london/ and put on show the likes of which I had never seen before. I’ve been to a few weddings, and they’ve been the usual kind of weddings that people would expect. Normally there is dancing and mingling at the reception, but when a magician is there, it’s a more fun experience. I never thought about the idea of hiring outside entertainment for wedding beyond having a simple band, but I’d be willing to hire one for my own wedding, if I get married in the future.

I think the bride and groom got the idea to have a magician at their wedding because of a trip to Las Vegas they took some time before. They saw a lot of shows while they were there, and one of the shows had a famous magician. Read Full Post…

A quick overview of terminating or surrounding a commercial lease early

In a world where commercial premises such as shops are closing their doors every day, commercial landlords can be left vulnerable to tenants who may want to end their lease prematurely. Doing this formally is known as giving a ‘break notice’ that will have been inserted into the lease as a ‘break clause’ when the lease was initially signed.

terminating or surrounding a commercial lease early

When can a tenant terminate the lease?

A tenant can only terminate a lease early if the lease contains a break clause. Before the tenant can move out, they have to serve their landlord with a break notice. It is important that everything is done correctly and legally, as not following proper procedure will nullify the break clause and the tenancy will have to run until its expiry date.

The timing must be right in order to exercise the break notice, and there are two types of break notices in regards to the timing. A ‘once and for all’ break notice means that there is a specific deadline for serving the break notice. If the tenant doesn’t meet this deadline, they will lose the right to break completely and the tenancy will continue until the contractual term is complete.

The second break notice is a ‘rolling’ notice. This means that the tenant needs to ensure that the timing is accurate, or a fresh notice will have to be served and the tenant is still liable for rent and other responsibilities in the meantime.

The tenant must also be 100% sure about where and who to serve the break notice to. If they have not established the correct address or recipient, the break notice will not be served and the tenant may not get another chance. It’s therefore important that a legal advisor handles this step.

Finally, a tenant must meet pre-conditions in the break clause in order to serve the notice. Examples include:

  • Paying all rent and other sums due
  • Providing vacant possession
  • Ensuring all the tenant’s covenants in the lease are performed
  • Paying a break penalty payment

All these can be difficult to carry out and understand for the average person, so it’s important that legal advice is sought for the outset. Ideally, tenants should seek advice on the lease requirements around 12 to 24 months before they wish to serve a break notice.

What if there isn’t a break notice?

If a break clause hasn’t been agreed when the tenancy agreement was created, there is another option for the tenant. The lease can only be terminated early if the landlord agrees to this, which is known as a ‘surrender’. A tenant can either put this in writing or it can be inferred from the conduct of both the tenant and the landlord by ‘operation of law’.

However, if a landlord does not wish to take the property back before the end of the lease then the landlord cannot be compelled to do so. In this case, the lease will have to remain in place until the end of the agreement. However, sometimes a ‘surrender premium’ may be sought by a landlord in order to end the lease.

Can a tenant simply hand the keys back?

What happens if there is no break clause or the tenant doesn’t go down the legal route and simply hands the landlord the keys back?

The short answer to this is that a tenant can’t simply hand the keys back and be on their way. The law states that a landlord must make it clear that the tenant giving up the property has been accepted as surrender. If a landlord isn’t accepting this a surrender, they must make it immediately clear that accepting keys to the property does not constitute a formal acceptance of surrender.

A landlord must always seek legal advice on what to do in this case, and not accept any offers of part or full payment until the issues have been discussed and negotiated with solicitors.

What if there is no break notice and the landlord won’t agree to a surrender?

It may be possible for the tenant to reduce outgoings by assigning the lease to a third party or taking on a subtenant. However, all this depends on the requirements of the lease and the permission of the landlord before entering into any agreements. Again, legal advice is crucial at this stage.

Ladakh Tourism Guide

About Ladakh

The geographical backbone of Ladakh, the Inuds Valley, particularly from Upshi down to Khalatse, is also the region’s histocric heartland. All the major sites connected with the former kingdom’s dynastic history are here, starting with Leh, the capital city since the early 17th century when Sengge Namgyal built its nine-storey palace.

A few kilometres up the Indus is Shey, the most ancient capital, with its palace and temples, their vibrantly coloured murals cleaned and restored in the mid-1980s. Down river, Basgo, right on the road and Tingmosgang, a short way up a side-valley, both served as capital cities when the country was temporarily divided into two parts in the 15th century, and both have the remains of forts and temples dating from the period of their brief glory.

Stok, just across the river from Leh, is the village with which the deposed royal family was compensated for the loss of its throne. Its palace houses a museum of artefacts associated with the dynasty, and there is also a small gompa.

Partly as a result of royal patronage, the central area of Ladakh has the greatest concentration of major gomps. Of the twelve situated on or near the Inuds, the is Lamayuru, believed to have been a sacred site for the pre-Buddhist religion known as Bon. Phiyang, Hemis and Chemrey were all founded under the direct partonage of members of the ruling Namgyal dynasty.

Phiyang represents an act of penance by the 16th century King Tashi Namgyal for the violence and treachery by which he reached the throne. Hemis, together with Hanle near the Tibetan border, was founded at the instance of King Sengge Namgyal, and Chemrey by his widow as a posthumous act of merit for him. Stakna, dating from a slightly earlier period, was endowed by the Namgyal kings at various times. All these belong to the red-hat Kar-gyut-pa sect of Tibetan monasticism.

The reformist Ge-lugs-pa (Yellow-hat) sect is also well represented in central Ladakh by Thikse, Likir, Ridzong and Spituk, the last of which hasdaughter houses at Stok, Sabu and Sankar. Ri-dzong, the only gompa which is not as yet approachable by a motorable road, is situated a few kilometres up a side- valley at Uley-Tokpo.

It was founded only a century and a quarter ago by a devout layman-turned-lama, with the purpose of giving full expression to the strict monastic rule of the Ge-lugs-pa. While the paintings and images in its temples may, to some extent, lack the aesthetic and antiquaian interest of those inthe older establishments, this gompa nevertheless has an indefinable atmoshpere of peace and dedication which reflects faithfully the inwardness of the Buddhist Way.

The smaller but much older Bying-ma-pa and Saskya-pa monastic sects are represented respectively by Tak-thok and Matho gompas. Takthok, at the foot of the Chang-la, incorporates one of the many caves in the Himalaya where the Indian Buddhist apostle Padma-sambhava is said to have rested and meditated on his journey to Tibet. Matho Gompa has a slightly rundown structure, but a vibrant religious community. It is famous for its festival of the oracles which takes place early in the year, usually in the first half of March.
