Here at Hart Brown, we understand that commercial landlord disputes can be difficult and overwhelming when trying to navigate the process by yourself. That is why we are on hand to help make sure you don’t risk damaging your commercial property investment during a dispute. 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 our commercial landlord solicitors take care of the details 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. We are also able to discuss in detail with you the responsibilities of the business landlord.
Our commercial landlord and property solicitors are experts in disputes and 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 commercial landlord solicitors have considerable experience in this area which 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.
