Running a business will always present its own set of challenges, so the last thing you want is for problems to arise concerning your commercial property. As with all disputes, the quicker you can act to find a solution to these issues the higher the chance of the best possible outcome for all involved.
There are many reasons you may find yourself embroiled in a property disagreement, from contractual discrepancies or tenancy clauses, to the potential proposed consequences of a fallen through sale or development works.
Working side by side on each individual case, our Conveyancing and Litigation teams will come together with you to give you the best advice possible on how to progress your case. Taking a conciliatory approach wherever possible, but ready to defend your legal rights and commercial interests through the courts if necessary, our solicitors can assist with disputes relating to:
- the location of boundaries;
- right of access and rights of way;
- adjoining property, including disputes about contamination and environmental damage;
- property insurance claims;
- business rates, including eligibility to apply for reliefs and exemptions;
- development issues, including those arising out of option agreements, overage agreements and conditional sale contracts;
- planning matters;
- professional negligence claims against architects, surveyors, structural engineers and construction companies;
- the sale and purchase of commercial property; and
- landlord and tenant issues, including disputes concerning rent deposits, authorised guarantee agreements, the exercise of break clauses, breaches of lease terms, requests for assignment or subletting, the carrying out of alterations or repairs, forfeiture and possession proceedings, applications for lease renewal under the Landlord and Tenant Act 1954 and tenant insolvency issues.
