Landlord & Tenant

With its large number of statutes and numerous regulations, the law regarding landlord and tenant is a complex area. Glanvilles Commercial Property solicitors have extensive experience in advising both landlords and tenants in the management of their commercial property portfolios.

As well as advising on and drafting, negotiating and arranging new leases, we also act for a wide range of clients including corporate occupiers and retailers on business lease renewals. We're there to assist when the relationship between landlord and tenant becomes problematic and one or the other of the parties becomes in breach of their obligations or wishes to change the terms of their agreement. These circumstances include:

Break rights and surrenders

Break notices frequently involve complications concerning tenant obligations. Glanvilles Commercial Property solicitors are often called upon by landlords and tenants to advise on the continuance of leases, possibly dealing with defective break notices and non-compliance with pre-conditions.

Consents to assign, underlet, alter and change use

Leases usually contain covenants which affect the way in which tenants can use their premises. Glanvilles regularly advise landlords and tenants on the interpretation and enforceability of these covenants.

Rent reviews

Glanvilles Commercial Property solicitors advise landlords and tenants regarding both their rights and opportunities in rent reviews and work closely with surveyors in seeking to agree the rent payable under a lease.

Rent and service charge recovery

Glanvilles act for a range of landlords across all sectors regarding the speedy and cost effective recovery of rent and service charges from tenants.

Forfeiture

Leases often contain a right for the landlord to re-enter the premises and forfeit the lease if the tenant is in breach of its obligations. The Glanvilles team is experienced in advising both landlords and tenants on the right to forfeit, how it can be waived and how relief from the process can be obtained from the court.

Insolvency

We have significant experience advising LPA Receivers and Property Consultants upon either landlord or tenant insolvency.

Dilapidations and exit strategies

Glanvilles work with leading valuation experts on behalf of landlords and tenants to support or defend a claim as required.
