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:
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:
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.
