Below you will find a great list of frequently asked questions, but feel free to get in touch with our friendly business centre team if you have any further questions.
- Where can I find more information on office pricing?

- What is a licence agreement?
- A licence agreement is a short-term contract. These can be for 6 or 12 months, and sets out what is provided by the Business Centre, and highlights your responsibilities as a tenant.
Licence agreements are also very simple and do not usually require the service of a solicitor.

- Is the electric metered or a fixed rate?
