Landlord and Tenant

Our property litigation lawyers have a wealth of experience dealing with the specific disagreements and disputes that can arise between a landlord and tenant. We act for a wide range of clients, from commercial landlords with a large portfolio of business premises to owners of buy-to-let residential homes.


Regardless of our clients’ backgrounds and the scale of property portfolios that they are dealing with, we understand the challenges that landlords face when problems with tenants arise and our team is well-versed in dealing with complex property law and contractual issues.


Examples of the types of dispute that we often assist landlords with include:-

  • Default of tenants and eviction;
  • Possession proceedings and enforcement;
  • Recovery of rent arrears;
  • Defending disrepair claims;
  • Disputes regarding compliance (including tenancy deposit schemes);
  • Dilapidation claims;
  • Lease renewal and surrender; and
  • Squatter eviction.


We also regularly act on behalf of tenants – of both commercial and residential premises – so, whatever the nature of your enquiry, get in touch and we will have the expertise to help. 



If you are a social housing landlord experiencing issues with your tenants, we would encourage you to visit our Social Housing page for further details of how we can assist.


For advice or assistance in relation to any other non-contentious matter relating to your premises – such as the drafting of tenancy agreements, leases, licences and guarantee agreements – please contact a member of our Commercial Property team who will be able to discuss your requirements in detail.
