Lansdowne Workshops consists of 20 small workshop units, which are ideal for practical, light industrial activities. The estate is in a quiet residential area and is therefore attractive to tenants who prefer a less ‘industrial’ setting. Like all GEB properties, they are well maintained by our in-house team. Tenants form a strong community, with a mix of newcomers and long-established businesses. Units vary in size from 170 sq. ft. to 1,500 sq. ft.

The estate is close to good bus and rail links from Charlton and Woolwich mainline stations; there is easy access to the A2 for central London, the Blackwall Tunnel and Kent

Facilities in each unit include:

  • Full power supply and lighting, with 3-phase available in some units
  • Metered water supply
  • Full height loading doors
  • Tenants for units 1-20 are responsible only for the maintenance of the inside of their unit and to ‘leave it as they found it’.
  • CCTV coverage
  • Shared toilet facilities on the ground floor
  • Ample on-site parking available
  • Units are let on GEB’s Small Business Lease – see TERMS

The length of our ‘Small Business Lease’ is by agreement; most tenants choose 4 years, which is usually renewable at its end

The leases are ‘internally repairing’ only. We, the landlord are responsible for repairs to the structure of the building and to the car park etc; tenants are responsible for the interiors of their units

Leases are exempted from the Landlord and Tenant Act

We usually offer tenants the right to terminate the lease and leave the premises after only 6 months

We charge a simple monthly Fee, which includes the rent and a fixed service charge. The service charge covers many items, including:

  • Structural and external repairs and maintenance.
  • Maintenance of the car park and shared areas.
  • Buildings insurance (not tenants’ contents)
  • CCTV
  • Removal of kitchen waste and office paper (tenants make their own arrangements for trade waste).

The Fees are defined in the lease for its duration; tenants thus know exactly what they will be paying in the years ahead, with no unexpected increases.

Incoming fees are the first month’s rent, plus one month which we hold as a security deposit.

A contribution of £300+ VAT is payable by the tenant towards the costs of the lease. This needs to be paid in order to start the process of taking a unit.
