Firstly you need to make sure that the property you identify for us to freeze upon must be a certified commercial one. The property we suggest should be on lease, if not self owned property. A basic terms and conditions sheet will be mailed to you in order get the best deal possible. You will require a no objection certificate from the owner in order to acquire the required licenses for running a restaurant. To list a few of them: a)no objection letter from the local fire department, b)eating house license from the local municipality, c)registration certificate from the local police department, d)shops and establishment from the local municipality for the property. e) n. o. c from the landlord or society of the property to operate a restaurant in the premises.
