Lease renewal and security of tenure

The need for specialist advice:

Disputes between commercial landlords and tenants commonly arise leading up to, and following the ending of a business lease.

This is a highly complex and extensive area of law, with major financial implications for all parties – so access to expert legal advice is vital.

Common grounds for the landlord terminating the lease include:

  • The tenant’s failure to comply with repairing obligations
  • Persistent delay in paying rent
  • Other substantial breaches of the lease by the tenant
  • Provision of suitable alternative accommodation by the landlord
  • The landlord’s requirement to dispose of the premises
  • The landlord’s intention to demolish or reconstruct the premises
  • The landlord’s need to occupy the premises for business purposes

The tenant may oppose the grounds, which will mean the matter going to court where the outcome will be decided.
