Landlord & Tenant

Landlord & tenant

Landlord & Tenant Law is an extremely complex area. When entering a lease both the landlord and the tenant need to be fully advised of the rights and obligations being created.

For instance from a tenants point of view a long lease may create certain rights of renewal for a tenant however such a lease is generally fully repairing and insuring. These leases can contain extremely onerous clauses if not carefully negotiated on behalf of a tenant. From a landlords point of view the benefit of such a long lease must also be weighed against the granting of renewal rights and also against important VAT considerations. Therefore it is essential that both a landlord and tenant obtain specialise and expert advice before entering a commercial lease.
