At the beginning of December 2014 I have a break clause on my shop's lease which allows me to legally walk away from my ties there. (With 6 months notice required, I am having to think about it now) - If I remain beyond December, due to the complications of a commercial lease, I will then be tied-in for another five years.
Hubby and I are in the process of making some life-changing plans, so with a heavy heart I have decided to take advantage of this clause in my lease. If anyone wishes to take over my current agreement in the near future, I will be able to vacate before December, otherwise I shall let it run the course. So, although the 'to let' signs are now up, I am open for business and will be trading as usual over the summer.
