Whether landlord or tenant, it is always advisable to have the right level of legal support from the outset, because in most cases the more detail that is agreed upon and set down in the Heads of Terms, the smoother the overall transaction will be. Taking into account your objectives, we will advise upon and draft the relevant documentation on your behalf, such as the lease agreement or extension.

We have an exemplary track record in dispute resolution, and we will act for both landlords and tenants when disputes arise around commercial leases or any aspect of the landlord-tenant relationship.

If you are a landlord, we will handle possession claims, such as standard claims, accelerated claims and even claims against secure tenants.

For tenants, we will act in defending claims being brought against you relating to the condition of the property, as well as in the protection of your deposits.

When a dispute does arise between a landlord and their tenant, matters may rapidly become heated, which in turn can be very stressful for everyone involved.

We will guide you through the options and clearly explain the implications, probable timescales and costs of each potential course of action, whether you are bringing a claim or seeking to defend a claim being made against you. Either way, we will work with you towards achieving practical and cost-effective resolution as quickly as possible.

Whatever the situation, we have the skills and expertise to advise and support clients towards reaching a resolution, and to provide unwavering representation in the event that it becomes necessary to bring the matter before the court.
