I have commercial premises currently let to a tenant, and they use it as a dance school. Current lease comes to an end in December (we purchased the property with her as a sitting tenant and this original lease has an end date of Dec 2020), but we have no hesitation in leasing it again to her probably for 3-5 years on a rolling contract.
I have just checked the EPC. Issued in 2017 (just before we purchased the building) and rated F.
Can I actually re-let as it is lower than an E? Is a Dance Studio exempt as I think it comes under Class E(d) commercial classification?
Can anyone help with some advice on this, please?
