Landlord & Tenant

Our property team are experienced with all landlord and tenant matters in both the domestic and commercial sectors. We can help with:

Domestic Leases

  • Advice on all aspects of assured shorthold tenancies and other tenancy agreements, whether you are a landlord or tenant.
  • Advice on what rights and obligations each party has.
  • Advice regarding the drawing up of long leases where clients wish to divide a building and sell parts of it for a premium.
  • Advice to clients on their obligations should they wish to take a long lease.

Commercial Leases

Commercial leases are different in design compared to residential leases. Their purpose is to give both the landlord and tenant an operating environment in which business may be conducted.

It is extremely important that legal advice is taken when any contract such as commercial lease agreements are being drafted. The terms and conditions need to be clearly defined and understandable by both parties. If they are not clearly understandable then the agreement may not be enforced in a court of law. The person entering into the contract must understand the terms and agree to them before the contract can be deemed legally binding.

Commercial lease agreements should be afforded extra caution on the part of the tenant. Any terms and conditions that are unclear or look unfavourably balanced towards the landlord should be clarified with legal advice. Never sign any contract until all the terms and conditions have been understood and agreed upon.

We can help with:

  • Advice to both landlords and tenants on all aspects relating to the provision of commercial leases.
  • Negotiating agreeable terms for our clients.
  • Advice to clients on their obligations in connection with commercial leases.
