Landlord and Tenant Disputes

When disputes about leasehold property arise, they can be emotive, difficult and time-consuming. We aim to provide the support and expertise so that they are not.

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 term of the lease.

Most tenant and landlord disputes come about because either the tenant or landlord has breached their obligations, or because their interests conflict. Rent may be 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.


What aspects of the landlord and tenant relationship do we cover?

  • Dilapidations
  • Lease renewals
  • Lease surrender
  • New leases
  • Tenant default
  • Squatter eviction
  • Landlord obligations

Our clients have varied backgrounds. Some are commercial landlords who own a portfolio of large-scale premises with multiple tenants. Others are owners of residential properties. We also act for commercial business tenants.

Whatever the situation we pride ourselves on being able to see the full picture. We understand the challenges for landlords in dealing with difficult tenant matters and any problematic contractual and property law issues that may arise. We understand the tenants’ point of view and the personal and commercial considerations that affect their tenancies.

We approach every actual and potential dispute in the firm belief that swift and certain resolution is key. Our team sees Court action as a last resort, always fully exploring the alternatives first.
