INTRODUCTION
Commercial lease disputes can often become very expensive and time-consuming processes. Commercial leases are often lengthy and detailed documents and it can be hugely damaging if you misinterpret a clause and base your case on that belief.
 
Obviously, the first step to reduce exposure to a commercial lease dispute is to make sure that your lease is bespoke to your particular needs, and that it is written in plain English. If everybody understands and accepts a lease document, they are less likely to reach a disagreement over it later on.
 
However, the potential for a commercial lease dispute can never be removed entirely. It is important then to ensure that you are fully aware of your legal position at the very outset of a landlord and tenant dispute.
 
ACSL Solicitors are able to draft bespoke leases for your particular needs. We can provide detailed legal and commercial advice so that you know exactly what your legal position is in the face of a commercial lease dispute. We will set out your full range of legal and commercial options, along with the likely costs and timescales for each.

Dilapidations

Schedules of dilapidations are schedules detailing the repairs which are needed to a property under the terms of the lease. They are often the cause of commercial property disputes between landlords and tenants, particularly upon termination of the lease. ACSL Solicitors will use our skills to help you to resolve commercial dilapidations disputes.


Rent Reviews
