A well drafted lease is the best way to avoid disputes between landlord and tenant. The limitless array or personalities and circumstances will inevitably mean that they will occasionally occur.

Early, practical and cost effective advice on a range of solutions is the key to the satisfactory resolution of such disputes. Whether you are a landlord or a tenant it is important to respond quickly to potential difficulties over rent payments, repairs, rent reviews, unlawful occupation or use, and breach of other covenants. The employment of appropriate advice at an early stage can prevent a difficulty developing into a costly dispute.

We strive to reach settlements without recourse to the courts, but if necessary our litigation department is able to provide firm, careful and pragmatic assistance in dealing with disputes that have not been resolved by other means.
