Landlord and Tenant
Looking After Your Commercial Property Interests
When you are a landlord or tenant of commercial property, it is important you are protected by the law and also that you act within the law with regard to how you conduct your business. Without the proper documentation in place, problems could arise and it’s a worthwhile investment to obtain professional and specialist advice and guidance.
If you are a landlord and wish to rent out your property, be sure to put the correct paperwork in place or you may end up unsupported by the law in the unfortunate event of a difficult tenant. It is far easier to take preventative steps than it is to pursue tenants through the courts should things go wrong. If you’re a tenant, make sure you can do what you want to do with the property and check the lease information thoroughly to be certain of your rights, responsibilities and obligations – and reduce the likelihood of disputes down the line.
Landlord and tenant disputes arise for numerous reasons, including insufficiently clear drafting of leases. Leases need to detail every aspect of what the business can and can’t do to help avoid future difficulties, and should you need to make any changes always have the amendments checked by a commercial property lawyer.
