Commercial Landlord & Tenant Disputes

We act for both individual and institutional landlords, including insurance and corporate pension trustee companies.

Landlords need some degree of certainty their tenants are honouring their contractual obligations under the lease, all the more so where this imposes full repairing and insuring obligations.  As a general rule it is better not to leave things until the end of the term only to find that the tenant does not have the means to remedy dilapidations when earlier action might have prevented this.  Landlords need to know their options for recovering possession without necessarily going to court (in the case of commercial premises), and how best to recover arrears of rent.

Tenants need to be aware of when a lease might be forfeit for non-payment of rent or breach of other obligations, and what to do when served with a Section 146 notice.  Tenants should be aware of out-of-court enforcement methods such as distraint for unpaid rent, and re-entry of premises without a court order

I would like to express my immense gratitude for the diligent and efficient manner that Parker Bullen solicitors dealt with my legal affairs (having spent many years trying to get legal justice) I would highly recommend Parker Bullen solicitors
