Lease disputes

The need for specialist advice:

Lease disputes are a highly technical area of law that bring numerous pitfalls. An early assessment of your case can prevent a dispute from escalating, while saving time and money.

This means it is essential to get prompt legal advice from specialist solicitors because the consequences for landlords and tenants can be huge and may lead to heavy financial losses.

Disputes commonly occur over:

  • Exercising a break clause
  • Rent review
  • Service charges
  • Renewal of a lease
  • Carrying out repairs
  • Payment of rent
  • Sub-letting
  • Alterations or use of the premises.

It is not always the tenant who is in breach of a lease because landlord must comply with a number of covenants, including the provision of services, insurance, and the tenant’s right of quiet enjoyment.

Equally important is the need to understand what remedies are available, how long the process is likely to take, and how much it is going to cost.
