Landlord and Tenant

I have, over the years, dealt with virtually every aspect of landlord and tenant work which affects commercial (and, in some cases, residential) property. In particular, I have detailed knowledge of the legislation affecting business tenants – the Landlord and Tenant Acts 1927 and 1954. I have dealt with contested and uncontested lease renewal applications for both landlords and tenants. I have drafted forms of lease and ancillary documents for every sector and occasion. I have handled disputes involving service charges and most counts of breach of obligation. Service charges have been a particular speciality: I drafted the precedents in the original precedents section of Hill & Redman’s Law of Landlord and Tenant. These precedents and the detailed commentary which accompanied them were well reviewed and regarded. I have, on behalf of both landlords and tenants, dealt with many dilapidations claims and disputes.
