Commercial lettings, whether you are the landlord or the tenant, can involve a myriad of complex issues when parties disagree about rights and entitlements. Even straightforward transactions can present problems if they are not properly completed. A proactive and carefully considered approach is essential.

What we do and where we specialise

We understand that your main priority is the continuity of your business and we work with you to minimise disruption, swiftly dealing with disputes through alternative dispute resolution, negotiation or, where necessary, litigation.

Based in York and Lincoln and with a nationwide portfolio of clients including retailers, manufacturers, transport operators and estate agencies; our Property Litigation team has a wealth of experience dealing with matters arising from commercial landlord and tenant disputes.

Our specialist advice includes:

  • Business Lease Renewals – contentious and non-contentious
  • Break notices
  • Consents to assign, sublet, alter, or change use
  • Dilapidation claims on behalf of landlords and tenants
  • Commercial Rent Arrears Recovery (CRAR)
  • Forfeiture
  • Rent and service charge recovery
  • Tenant insolvency

How we work

Whether you need someone to serve a break notice, to bring or defend a dilapidations claim or you wish to develop a tailor-made strategy for your estate, we can provide clear and practical advice, enabling you to make informed business decisions and maximise the value of your property interests.
