Know Your Legal Rights with a Commercial Lease Dispute

Navigating a commercial lease dispute can be challenging, but with the support of our experienced solicitors, you can assert your rights effectively. Here’s an overview of the key legal rights you should be aware of:

(1) Lease Termination and Renewal

As a tenant, you have the right to a fair and reasonable lease or termination process. Our solicitors will review your lease agreement and advise you on the proper notice period, termination conditions, and potential lease renewal options available to you.

(2) Rent and Service Charge Disputes

If you encounter issues with rent or service charge payments, it’s crucial to address them promptly. Our solicitors can assess the validity of the charges, negotiate with landlords on your behalf, and guide you through the process of resolving such disputes.

(3) Repairs and Maintenance

Landlords have a legal obligation to maintain the property in a habitable condition. If you face repair or maintenance issues, our solicitors can help you understand your rights, communicate with the landlord, and seek appropriate remedies to ensure the property meets acceptable standards. If repairs are ignored, the landlord may consider a possession claim for the commercial premises. 

(4) Breach of Lease Terms

Should your landlord breach any lease terms, it’s important to take appropriate action. Our solicitors will assess the situation, determine the impact on your rights, and advise you on the best course of action, whether it involves negotiation, mediation, or pursuing legal remedies.

My Tenant has left the Premises and there is Disrepair and Damage, Can I Make a Claim For Losses?

The starting point is to check your lease and the covenants of repairs and/or clause(s) when the tenant leaves the premises. Usually, the covenants will say the tenant needs to repair and maintain the property throughout the term of the lease and return the premises in good condition at the end of the lease.

You should appoint a surveyor to prepare a schedule of dilapidations that details the breaches of the covenants of the lease, the cost of repair, and more. We can help you to recover your losses if you have a claim for dilapidation.
