Landlord & Tenant

Landlord and Tenant law is highly complex, with many traps for the unwary on both sides.

The relationship has to be documented in a way which successfully manages both matters which take effect from the moment the property is occupied and issues which continue to impact both parties after the occupation itself has come to an end. It is therefore important to understand and manage the risks and limit exposure from the outset.

With expertise in acting for landlords and tenants in a wide range of industries from retail, energy, aviation, shipping, leisure, residential and industrial, we can ensure our advice is tailored to meet your specific needs and circumstances.

We can help you with:

  • negotiating and documenting leases, licences and tenancies to ensure clear and practical documentation
  • advising on specific issues arising with repair obligations, dilapidations, service charge matters, security of tenure, and break clauses
  • for residential landlords and tenants, we can assist with enfranchisement claims and lease extensions
