Hi, still trying to sell our cafe in Cornwall. We are at the end of a 15 year lease (its ongoing and ends in March) its old fashioned and asks for any payment to be made to the Landlord within 7 days, also as it is at the end of the term I have nothing to sell but the goodwill and fixtures and fittings which makes the business worth half less than we paid for it. If we ask for a new lease in the new owners name are we still liable under the terms of the old lease if the new owners go bankrupt. I am receiving conflicting views as my Solicitor is away ill and his Locum states that if I do not have a new lease in our name we have nothing to sell. is this just a technicallity . So basically what I need to know is if the new owners have a brand new lease will we still be liable somewhere in the future. We are now in our 60s and will only have our retirement pension. Thanks again. (Your site is very helpful).
