Commercial lease dispute resolution

As with any business relationship, issues can sometimes arise between a landlord and tenant that they cannot resolve without expert advice and guidance. Whether this is over the terms of a lease, the condition of the property, the behaviour of either party or any other issue, it is essential to find a fast, effective solution to prevent the conflict from escalating and allow both parties to protect their commercial interests.

When dealing with commercial lease disputes, our goal is to make the process of finding a positive outcome as fast, cost-effective and stress-free as possible, while also allowing you to maintain your relationship with the other party. As such, we will try to avoid the need for court action wherever possible by using Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) to find a solution both parties are happy with.

Alternative Dispute Resolution relies on methods such as negotiation and commercial mediation to allow both parties to discuss their issues and work together to agree a solution. This can allow you to protect your legal and commercial interests while preventing unnecessary conflict and cost.

By keeping the matter out of court, it is usually possible to find a solution faster while keeping costs to a minimum and preventing a worsening of the landlord-tenant relationship.
