WHN’s has a specialist team of individuals who deal with forfeiture of long residential leases and are able to guide you through the various statutory restrictions that have been implemented for the protection of tenants.

Breach of covenant

Disputes often arise between landlord and tenant following a failure to comply with the covenants in the lease. Each party has a number of options available. We can assist in resolving the dispute if it has already arisen or with a view to avoiding a dispute arising in the future. The aim is to secure a cost effective and efficient resolution without the need to resort to protracted and costly litigation.
