Experienced Flexible Office Space Solicitors
At OGR Stock Denton, our flexible office solicitors are adapting to this new way of working and providing a brand new service – flexible office law.
The way we work is changing. Flexible workspaces have become increasingly popular as the country gets back to a new normal after two years of upheaval. Rather than signing long leases, small businesses, in particular, are opting for flexible office space that they can use as and when needed.
With home working and hot-desking also now part of our everyday work environment, we need to re-examine the finer legal aspects of flexible working.
To make an appointment to discuss any aspect of Flexible Offices please email or call on 020 8349 0321.

Why Do You Need a Flexible Office Lawyer?
A flexible space contract must be legally watertight like any lease or agreement. Traditional leases are carefully drawn-up documents, but because of the unique nature of a flexible office space contract, they cannot be ‘grandfathered’ over to cover flexible workspaces.
You may need to create an agreement that considers the new method of working. OGR Stock Denton offers legal expertise to help you and your business negotiate your flexible space contract.
What Is a Flexible Space Contract?
When you take on a commercial property, you will always be asked to sign a lease agreement. This covers the terms and conditions of the relationship between the leaseholder and the property owner. It will include items such as:
- Who is responsible for the upkeep of the interior and exterior of the building
- Installation of services such as broadband or IT
- Health and safety
- Operating restrictions (such as 24-hour access to the office).
With a flexible space contract, all of these considerations are taken into account, but with additional provisos to cover issues such as:
- How the office space is arranged and used in conjunction with other users
- Security and confidentiality
What Other Factors need to be Considered?
It is not just property law that our flexible office solicitors can help with in today’s modern office. Working from home, either full-time or part-time, has also transformed how businesses operate. As an employer, you need to understand exactly what your responsibilities are for workers who choose to adopt a more flexible working practice, including:
- Changes to employment contracts to reflect home-working
- Health and safety concerns
- Duty of care for offsite employees
- Budget considerations for running flexible office spaces
- The legalities of ‘hot-desking’.
