We can advise you as either a landlord or a tenant, and whether the property and lease in question are commercial or residential. Our aim is always to resolve the dispute for you as quickly and cost-effectively as possible. Our specialists are highly experienced in a number of ways to resolve disputes between landlords and tenants: roundtable negotiation, formal mediation, or court proceedings. We always pursue the most appropriate method.

Commercial Disputes

Common commercial issues/scenarios include:
  • Dilapidation claims – when damage or disrepair is discovered by the landlord, commonly at the end of the lease
  • Breach of covenant – when a tenant fails to comply with the terms of the lease
  • Commercial rent arrears recovery (CRAR) – helping you recover unpaid rent by serving prior notice of seizure to the tenant
  • Forfeiture and recovery of possession – taking your property back if the tenant fails to pay rent or breaches covenants
  • Lease renewal disputes
  • Rent review disputes
  • Service charge disputes/recovery

Residential Disputes

Common residential issues/scenarios include:
  • Breach of covenant – when a tenant fails to comply with the terms of the lease
