Freehold Purchase & Leasehold Extension Solicitors
Whether you are a commercial property landlord or a tenant, we can help you in all aspects of leasing, licences, property portfolio management, residential and commercial leases.
The first thing we would do is to ensure that you understand the obligations you are entering into and the liabilities they create. Guarantees, rent deposits, the terms upon which rent will be reviewed, service charges, insurance, the right for the tenant to assign or underlet (granting of a lease subject to a head lease) and dilapidations ( the state of the property at the end of the lease) are all complex issues. Our detailed and expert advice can save you a lot of money and ensure that you are pursuing the right course.
On your lease renewals we can advise you on your rights and on the procedures that must be followed under the Landlord and Tenant Act 1954 so that you can successfully renew a lease or bring it to an end.
If your lease renewal involves an application to the court in order to decide the terms of the new lease we will work closely with our commercial litigation team to help you achieve your desired result.
