Landlord & Tenant
Did you know that two thirds of the property occupied by businesses is rented rather than owned? It means it’s more likely that your property problems will be to do with your status as a landlord or tenant than as an owner.
Our property lawyers can help your business whether you’re a landlord or a tenant. We can help you with:
- Drafting, negotiating and agreeing new leases and tenancy agreements and associated documents including Rent Deposit Deeds and Guarantees
- Lease renewals
- Licences in connection with business premises including Licences to Underlet and Licences to Carry out Works
- Disputes including break clauses, rent review, service charge and dilapidations claims
- Residential Landlord and Tenant issues including enfranchisement and right of pre-emption for qualifying tenants on sale of freehold

New regulations made under the Animal Welfare Act 2006 mean that certain activities, including breeding dogs, selling pets, providing boarding for cats or dogs, and hiring out horses, may require a new form of licence from the local authority.
