Commercial Landlord and Tenant Disputes

Duncan Lewis Commercial Property Solicitors – Commercial Landlord & Tenant Disputes


Landlord and tenant disputes involving commercial properties require swift intervention to prevent a damaging situation to both parties – including potential loss of revenue to landlords or income/livelihood in the case of commercial tenants.


Duncan Lewis commercial property solicitors are able to advise both landlords and tenants on a wide range of property disputes, including:

  • Alterations and change of use
  • Breach of covenant
  • Break rights and surrenders
  • Business lease renewals
  • Commercial property rent arrears
  • Commercial lease termination
  • Disrepair of commercial property
  • Forfeiture (Section 146 Notice)
  • Insolvency (landlord or tenant)
  • Rent reviews
  • Service Charge disputes.

Litigation in commercial property disputes can be lengthy and expensive – and it is vital to take legal advice sooner rather than later to keep costs down.


Commercial property – Rent arrears


Duncan Lewis has highly successful property and property litigation departments which can advise on any matter relating to a commercial property dispute, including advising on the best course of action to recover rent arrears from a commercial tenant – including levying distress restraints on goods on the premises.


Commercial property – Repairs


Duncan Lewis property solicitors also have extensive experience in dealing with disrepair cases – and can advise both commercial landlords and commercial tenants on their obligations under a commercial tenancy, including commercial landlords failing to carry out repairs, or a commercial tenant causing damage to a property or failing to carry out repairs under the tenancy agreement.


Commercial property – Forfeiture


In cases involving breach of covenant leading to forfeiture, Duncan Lewis can advise both landlords and tenants on a landlord’s right to enter the property under the tenancy agreement, including landlords serving a Section 146 Notice – or tenants serving a counter notice to a Section 146.


Duncan Lewis property solicitors can also advise on alternatives to litigation and court action in commercial property disputes, including dispute resolution and mediation.
