Landlord and Tenant law is a very complex area therefore it is essential that you get advice before either moving into commercial property or allowing someone else into occupation of your property.
A poorly drafted lease or, just as bad, having no lease at all, is a recipe for all manner of disputes, often arising when the landlord wants the tenant to leave or to carry out some maintenance to the property.
As a landlord, a properly drafted lease, will ensure that you know what you can and cannot expect of your tenant and can help minimise the potential for avoidable disputes in the future.
As a tenant, you need to know from the outset what your obligations to the landlord are going to be, such as the extent of your repairing obligations. We can help to negotiate the terms of your lease to ensure that they are as fair as possible to both parties and will also help you to understand what will be required of you.
