Does anybody know of an available private shop or workspace from the brewers bottleneck down to cliffe to rent? it can be off highstreet but shouldn't be too hidden, any help is kindly appreciated.

There's a place on School Hill at basement level (between White Stuff and Tizz's, I think) which used to be a veggie cafe (called Four Seasons??). I noticed it was still empty the other day, but I don't know whether the owner is trying to let it out. Fairly visible, even though it's down steps.

What about the Riverside? there is a unit to let on the ground floor. i noticed it was empty the other day-dunno if it's taken or still available, have been thinking of it for myself-it'd be such a great place to be based.

Thankyou for your posts, the basement would be a good idea but not too sure whether the public liability would be too much, ill have to check it out and as for the riverside, I have noticed that as well but its not what im looking for, building rules and too much interference from surrounding shops!
Keep them coming though, this is great feedback!

What do you mean , a private shop ? surely a shop needs to be public . The many commercial agents will have details of any abailable properties im sure ,it is after all the point of their existence . Or were you trying to get something on the cheap ? Its Lewes you wont .

Doesn't a Private Shop have to get a special licence to sell that kind of stuff ? God know the locals need it ! As long as it sold Milk too !!

I'm a barber and looking for a shop to rent, I've tried the estate agents but everthings gone. I was asking for it to be private, not for it to be hidden but so I can deal directly with the owner and miss the money grabbing agents! I need Lewes as me and my business partner have a clientele. It can be anything from an empty garage to a full shop I just need details.

What's with the rash of Barbers ? There's a new one opening in Western Road, in the old Greengrocers. I suppose it's certain hair grows. And in Lewes you can often actually hear it grow !

further to my last post i notice that the shop in Market st is now with oakleys , but i think you ll find that the " money grabbing" agents take their money from the landlord not the new tenant .

I do know someone but not sure if they would want their private details broadcast on here. I'll tell them about your post and maybe they will get back to you.

Most of the agents state that landlords fee's are covered in full by the tenant, also the case of references and credit checks mean a large sum of money would be used up before we've even occupied the premises which would be used for furniture and shop fittings and also if they take the money off the landlord wouldn't it seem fit for all involved to be approached directly? I rent privately and all is much simpler. .... Maybe.... That would be much appreciated, thankyou.

But that's not to say I wouldn't consider renting through an agent, all help received in finding a premises is appreciated. (my last post may come across too strong, this was not intended and I apologize)

The short-lived chocolate shop that moved to the premises opposite the train station is empty and if I recall, the owners were advertising to let it privately on here not so long ago
On 22 May 2014 at 2:25pm barberboy wrote:
is the old premises empty or the lock up shop opposite the station? I've had a look back through the archive and can't find any subject about it. Was it advertised on the forum or another part of the website?

Commercial Agents do not work the same as residential agents. There are no 'fees' to prospective tenants. But obviously the landlord would want some proof that you would be good for the rental period and that you would be a good tenant and normal business references would need to be supplied, but no fees are asked for these. You may even be asked for a holding deposit of rent and business plan.

Oh okay, well my business partner would be dealing with that as he's had plenty of experience renting shops and creating businesses. I am purely on here to see if anybody knows of a shop/premises that's free to rent privately or through an agent.

Maybe Barberboy, you should stick to cutting hair and let your business partner, take care of the business.

Have you looked at Bizspace? Think they may have a few units to rent. This was a while ago now so they may have gone
