Services for landlords and commercial tenants

When a dispute between a landlord and tenant about a leasehold property crops up, it can be emotive, difficult and time-consuming. With the support of experienced solicitors, they needn’t be.

Landlord and tenant relationships can have both a residential and a commercial context. Some tenants live in their leased property, for others, it’s their business premises. Either way, a tenant will want to exercise a degree of control over the way in which they use the property, the rent they pay and the term of the lease.

Most landlord and tenant disputes come about because either the tenant or landlord has breached their obligations, or because their interests conflict. Perhaps rent is in arrears or the tenant has unlawfully sub-let part of the property. Or perhaps there is a disagreement about a service charge or the terms of a lease renewal.
