Commercial Property Disputes

The property you choose for your commercial enterprise is one of the biggest and most expensive commitments you may undertake, and therefore should any issues arise it can be incredibly disruptive and stressful for those involved.

Even the smallest of disagreements can become both time consuming and costly if not dealt with efficiently.Some matters you may feel you can deal with yourself, however if after an initial attempt at finding a solution the situation remains the same, then is the time to investigate the possibility of enlisting professional legal assistance.

Our commercial property teams work closely with their litigation colleagues to provide you with a fast, clear and accurate service, understanding your needs and desired outcomes and working with you to achieve these as swiftly as possible.

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.
