Dispute Resolution Solicitors
Commercial Property Disputes

Commercial Property disputes are a complex area of the law. Whether you are a tenant or landlord, our Commercial Property Dispute Solicitors will provide you with the legal expertise needed to resolve your Commercial Property dispute.

We understand that a dispute relating to a commercial lease can be worrying for either a landlord or tenant. A landlord may be concerned about rental payments and investment returns or a commercial tenant may be focussed on the impact the Commercial Property dispute will have on their business and its profitability.

When Commercial Property disputes occur it is important to get expert legal advice from Commercial Property Dispute Solicitors who will act quickly, pragmatically and will focus on providing you with the clear and tactical legal advice you require.


Commercial Property Disputes

A Commercial Property dispute is a disagreement involving a Commercial Property or property that is used for business purposes, such as an office, shop or warehouse.

Disputes typically occur between landlords, tenants and potentially their neighbouring property owners.

Our Commercial Property Dispute Resolution Solicitors advise on a range of matters including:

  • Boundary disputes.
  • Dilapidation claims.
  • Landlord and tenant disputes.
  • Lease renewal proceedings at the end of a qualifying lease.
  • Nuisance disputes, such as noise or smells emanating from business premises.
  • Options to terminate a lease early.
  • Tenant breaches, such as failure to pay rent, damage to property or using the business premises for business use outside the terms of the commercial lease.

Whatever the reason for the Commercial Property dispute, seeking a resolution swiftly is the best course of action and, with our expert legal guidance, this can be achieved.

There are several strict deadlines in relation to landlord and tenant disputes, which is why we recommend that you seek legal advice as soon as an issue occurs so that we can advise you about your legal options and the relevant time limits for action.

Dilapidation Claims

Commercial tenants are under an obligation to make sure that they return leased property in a good state of repair and decoration at the end of their business lease. Tenants who fail to comply with these obligations may find themselves in dispute and with their landlord bringing a dilapidation claim after the lease has ended.

Dilapidation disputes can be complex. They often rely heavily on contractual obligations, surveying and valuations, which is why legal advice must be sought at the earliest point, regardless of whether you are the landlord bringing a dilapidation claim or a tenant opposing it.

Commercial Landlord and Tenant Disputes

Our Commercial Property Solicitors have an in-depth understanding of legal procedures and have substantial experience in supporting both tenants and landlords, as well as developers and investors. We understand the importance of the efficient recovery of rent arrears and resolving Commercial Property claims to allow landlords to re-let properties and the need for tenants to resume their business activities, having resolved allegations of nuisance or breach of a commercial lease.

If you are involved in a landlord-tenant dispute and are struggling to resolve it, our Commercial Property Dispute Resolution Solicitors are here to assist you in resolving the issues as efficiently and swiftly as possible.

Alternative Dispute Resolution

Litigation can be time-consuming, costly, and draining for all the parties engaged, which is why we focus on commercially driven settlement methods to resolve Commercial Property disputes.

We can advise you on the different Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) options available, including:

  • Arbitration – the most formal of the ADR methods where an Arbitrator makes a determination to resolve the dispute;
  • Mediation – conducted by a specialist Mediator with the skills to help disputing parties reach a compromise and settlement; and
  • Negotiation – an informal and flexible way to resolve a Commercial Property dispute through Solicitor negotiation.

Our team will assess your property dispute and advise on the best ADR option to help you achieve a resolution.

Our Fees

Where possible we will offer a fixed fee, so you will know what the costs are from the start. For more complex or uncertain projects, we will provide you with an estimate of the likely fees involved and keep you updated throughout the matter.
