Landlord & tenant

The law governing the relationship between landlord and tenant is complex. You need someone to guide you through this minefield to make sure your interests are properly looked after.

We provide a complete and efficient service, giving clear, cost-effective, practical and pragmatic advice on all matters arising from a landlord/tenant relationship, whether at its creation, variation or termination. We are commercially-minded and will work with you to find the right solution for your needs.

Our team has many years of commercial landlord and tenant experience and includes specialist practitioners who deal with nothing other than landlord and tenant disputes and have the breadth of knowledge and experience and can deal with contested lease renewals and negotiations, dilapidation claims and all manner of specific landlord and tenant disputes.

We can assist you from the start to the end of the deal; from agreeing heads of terms through to delivering meaningful commercial agreements that work for you. We will keep you informed and at all times endeavour to achieve your goals.

We act for both investor landlords and commercial tenants. We deal with granting assigning and surrendering leases, underleases and licenses.  We have a depth of commercial experience and will navigate you through the whole transaction. Members of the team have also acted in granting commercial leases of industrial and retail parks, establishing bespoke service and estate charges. We have acted in multi aspect lease variation and disposal as well as tripartite lease and reversionary lease grants. The team has also acted for sale, leasebacks and advised on complex SDLT (Stamp Duty) and VAT issues.

We can help with:

  • Granting or taking a new lease
  • Assignment, underletting or variation of lease terms
  • Issues relating to the Landlord and Tenant Act 1954
  • Surrenders
  • Renewals
  • Consent for alterations
  • Dilapidations
  • Forfeiture
  • Possession actions and rent recovery

We are trying to break the mould. We are first and foremost specialist practitioners. We are not here to show how clever we are, we are not here to tell you what can’t be done, our role is to work with the other professional teams involved in your deal to achieve for you what you would like to achieve.
