Commercial Tenant Disputes

Resolving commercial landlord and tenant disputes

Here at Hart Brown, our team of solicitors are experts in resolving commercial landlord and tenant disputes. We know that a dispute with your landlord can result not only in your losing the property but also the goodwill being destroyed. Commercial tenancy disputes and the complexities of commercial tenancy law can cause a lot of stress to both parties and we are on hand to find a resolution quickly but still works the best for you. 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.

Hart Brown’s team are used to dealing with a variety of commercial landlord and tenant disputes. We have a proven track record of success in dealing with the following:

  • 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

Commercial property disputes can be daunting and can often bring up lots of questions. We are able to advise on the tenants rights in commercial properties and the laws surrounding that area.

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.
