Breach of covenants

The need for specialist advice:

Disputes often arise when someone fails to comply with a covenant – for example not paying rent, failing to keep premises in good repair, or carrying out unauthorised alterations.

A number of remedies are available, depending on the nature and extent of the breach. Often a commercial solution can be achieved by negotiation, but whichever course is taken it is vital to take specialist legal advice.
