    BBQ permission letter template

    Hi All

    Can anyone help with a template for a letter for tenants/customers to allow use of a BBQ at the property?

    The AST forbids it without permission from the landlord, so we can give permission and if required withdraw permission.

    Thanks

    Is the garden a shared area, is there anything in the lease that prevents BBQs? If not then I wonder why a BBQ is prohibited it seems an odd clause to have in an AST, it is their home to enjoy and seems very draconian for a tenant to have to ask permission for a BBQ.

    If you don't trust them to look after the property and garden then that is a separate issue that affects the whole property and not just a BBQ.

    Sorry I don't have a sample letter but you can draft something friendly and say yes they can as long as at next inspection there is no evidence that it has had any detrimental effect to the garden or nearby structures.

    I never said I wouldn't give a permission, but we issue it on a property by property basis, on the advice of the Fire Safety officer to ensure they can be given specific safety rules...rather than clog up our standard contract.

    In fact the special conditions (we use a standard NLA contract plus a property specific special conditions page) states BBQ's are allowed subject to agreeing the advice, rules and regs. We are anything but a draconian landlord to our customers...trust me.

    I'll draft a simple letter, and get the fire officer to add something simple.

    Don't forget to require BBQ only to be used outside (seriously...).


    That's a new one, a Fire safety officer giving advice on the wording of tenancy documents:  Often even experienced landlords are advised not to fiddle with such contracts.

    my reply sounds confrontational, sorry about that. I meant to preface at the beginning, that you raise a good point about inspections though.

    Thanks
