As they say, there are two sides to every story. Never more so than getting into a dispute whether as a landlord or a tenant. The bottom line can ultimately be costly and damaging for both parties.
If it’s a commercial property dispute, then things can escalate to the point that landlords face lost income and stress of solving issues, and tenants are aggrieved at the lack of communications and decide to get awkward in the face of a growing row with a landlord.
Whatever, the length, breadth and width of a commercial property dispute, Nath Solicitors are here to ensure that first and foremost the only way is resolution. We can advise both landlords and tenants on their rights, and also on a host of dispute areas.
Disputes and litigation come in all manner of shapes and sizes so it’s imperative that rather than take a hard-line attitude and digging your heels in, you seek out Nath Solicitors.
We can provide cost-effective, efficient solutions for your needs and ensure your interests and expectations are met in any dispute.
From the landlord’s point of view, these areas of concern can include:
Buildings change of use, damage, extensions and disrepair
Contract reviews and breaches
Lease negotiation, renewal, extension and termination
Recovery of service charges
Recovery of possession
Rent reviews/rent arrears
