User Clause

This is a contractual provision within a lease, that specifies the use, or uses to which a property may be put and the uses which are prohibited.

Commercial Services
Services A to F
Services G to P
Services Q to V

The formal classification of "Uses" are set out in the Town and Country Planning (Use Classes) Order 1987 as amended, which is a statutory instrument defining various use classes.

The terminology of a user clause contained within a lease is critical in determining whether the use specified is restrictive or open.

This aspect can be very important when considering the open market rental value of a property.
