Specialist legal and commercial acumen to resolve commercial property disputes

Commercial property disputes or landlord and tenant disagreements can distract you from your core business. A legal specialist can help you reach a swifter more cost-effective resolution.

Whether you are a large Plc or an individual, a landlord or a tenant, our litigation experts can help you resolve your commercial property dispute in the most pragmatic, proportionate and cost-effective way.

We also offer a hybrid service where there is an overlap between the Commercial Property and Commercial (Property) Litigation departments. In Landlord and Tenant Act 1954 uncontested renewals a single solicitor is instructed to manage both the litigation and transactional aspects of the matter. 

Our specialist property litigation solicitors combine national and local market expertise with exceptional skills in litigation and commercial acumen to devise the optimal strategy to reach your goal.

In commercial property disputes, there is often an ongoing relationship between landlord and tenant which will need to be considered. With our wide-ranging experience, we understand both sides of the argument and the tactics involved.

We will work closely with you to understand your objectives and provide commercially focussed advice. Wherever possible, we look for options which will resolve cases amicably and at an early stage, without the need to go to court, as this is usually the most cost-effective and least stressful way to bring matters to a close.

The team can offer a number of alternative forms of dispute resolution, such as mediation and arbitration. However, where situations cannot be resolved by agreement, we have considerable expertise at all levels of court and tribunal proceedings and can represent you if the need arises.

We advise on all aspects of landlord and tenant commercial relationships, including:

  • Service of notices S25 and S26 under the Landlord and Tenant 1954 Act in contested and uncontested lease renewals, and progressing the matter to a conclusion
  • Hybrid role – Landlord and Tenant Act 1954 unopposed litigation and transactional lease drafting
  • Options to break
  • Dilapidations
  • Possession and repossession proceedings
  • Recovery of rent arrears
  • Forfeiture
  • Service charge disputes
  • Breach of lease covenants
  • Tenant insolvency
  • Squatters
  • Rectification
  • Advising on commercial issues
  • Advising on tenant issues linked to development projects including mixed use projects

We also offer practical and tailored advice in relation to all property disputes including:

  • Nuisance and trespass
  • Boundary disputes
  • Restrictive covenants
  • Right of way and easement disputes
  • Injunctions
