Property Disputes

Property disputes often require a fast assessment of complex issues, unequivocal advice and decisive action. Outcomes can have a significant impact on the value of an owner’s property interests, or on the ability of an occupier to maintain its business operations. We have a dedicated and experienced team of highly regarded property litigators who work extensively in conjunction with the firm’s commercial property team to provide a one stop shop for all commercial property related matters.

Much of the team’s work involves early stage troubleshooting and dispute avoidance, or advisory work in relation to risks identified on acquisition or disposal of property. The team works across a number of business sectors, acting for both landlords and tenants in relation to property management issues as well as for property owners, occupiers, investors and developers in relation to the whole range of contentious property issues.

Whilst many disputes are capable of resolution at an early stage, we are experienced in pursuing cases through the courts, the Lands Tribunal and by mediation; and our approach is centred around ongoing monitoring of risk, merit and strategy.

The types of work undertaken by the team include:-

  • Hostile and non-hostile lease renewals and other issues under the Landlord and Tenant Act 1954
  • Dilapidations
  • Forfeiture and relief from forfeiture
  • Rent review disputes
  • Service charge disputes
  • Boundary and party wall disputes
  • Restrictive covenants
  • Possession claims
  • Disputes relating to contracts for the sale and purchase of property
  • Rent recovery
  • Property related professional negligence claims
