Landlord & tenant

Like any contractual relationship, the terms of a lease between landlord and tenant require careful consideration as there could be many hidden traps to catch the unwary.

Our landlord and tenant team and property dispute solicitors are able to provide the full range of landlord and tenant services, whether acting for those granting or those taking leases of property.

These include negotiation of new leases, assignments or transfer of leases, sale and purchase, surrenders of leases, forfeiture, rent review, dilapidations and all other related matters. Leases can, and do, represent a significant overhead for an operating business, or a significant income generating investment for landlords.

Our balance of legal knowledge, practical experience and pragmatism ensures you receive the best advice in relation to all landlord and tenant issues.

If you would like any further information or to discuss any business matter, please contact us.
