Commercial Landlord Disputes

Once you have decided to invest in commercial property you need to be sure that legal issues with your tenants do not jeopardise the return on your investment. Whatever the arrangements let us take care of the detail in the documents and the legislation so you don’t have to. If fresh documents need to be prepared, we can call upon the skills of our commercial property lawyers.

Our commercial property dispute lawyers have a proven track record of success in dealing with all kinds of commercial landlord and tenant disputes including

  • claims for non payment of rent or service charges
  • other breaches of covenants
  • dilapidation and repair claims
  • disputes relating to unauthorised assignment or subletting
  • possession proceedings under the Landlord and Tenant Act 1954

This is a complex and heavily regulated area of law where a failure to follow the correct procedure can cause delay, expense and in the worst case scenario a counterclaim for damages by the tenant. In a lot of cases it is important to act both quickly and decisively. Our considerable experience in this area enables us to do both.

Whilst ultimately there may be no option but to issue court proceedings against the tenant we will always explore other ways of resolving the dispute by means of negotiation, a ‘round-table meeting’ or mediation. This is particularly important where  you want or need to maintain an ongoing relationship with the tenant.

To speak to one of our property dispute experts who can help with a dispute with your tenant in relation to commercial premises or any other commercial dispute please call, email or request a call back from one of our specialist lawyers.
