    Property disputes

    One of a business’ most important assets is its commercial premises.  And in the case of a commercial landlord, those premises are its core business. It is unsurprising therefore that disputes will often arise between landlords and tenants of commercial property.

    The types of property disputes we often encounter between a commercial landlord and its tenant include: rent reviews; end of the lease dilapidations; non-payment of rent; lease renewal claims under the Landlord and Tenant Act 1954; failure to repair; and breaches of leasehold covenant.

    Commercial property owners can also face disputes over business rates or noise or boundaries.

    Whatever the nature of your dispute involving commercial property, our experienced property litigation team have probably seen it before. You can trust our expert team of property litigation lawyers to resolve the dispute with professionalism, sensitivity and care, no matter how complex.

    Our property litigation team also works closely with our commercial property team to make sure any resolution to a dispute can be practically achieved.

    Building a reputation for excellence

    If you’re currently struggling with a commercial property dispute, we’ve found that even the most complicated issue can be satisfactorily resolved through Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR), including mediation, without resorting to court proceedings. However, if you do have to go to Court, then our team have recorded numerous successes at trial for our commercial property clients. Our property litigation team are also experienced at resolving disputes via PACT or in the Lands Tribunal. Also, if a dispute isn’t worth pursuing for financial reasons, we’ll tell you.
