Commercial Tenant Disputes

As a tenant of commercial premises you have a financial interest in the property, particularly if you have built up goodwill with a loyal customer base over many years.  A dispute with your landlord can result not only in your losing the property but also the goodwill being destroyed.

Hart Brown’s commercial property dispute lawyers have a proven track record of success in dealing with all kinds of commercial landlord and tenant disputes including:

  • possession or renewal claims under the Landlord and Tenant Act 1954
  • claims for  arrears  of rent or service charges
  • other breaches  of  covenant
  • dilapidation or repair claims
  • disputes relating to unauthorised alterations or subletting
  • forfeiture

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 the loss of the tenancy altogether.  In many of these cases it is important to act both quickly and decisively. Hart Brown’s considerable experience in this area enables us to do both.

Whilst the only option may be to resolve the dispute in court proceedings, we will always explore other ways of resolving the dispute by means of negotiation, a ‘round table meeting’, or mediation.
