Property Disputes

If you are involved in a property dispute, whether commercial, agricultural or residential, our experienced property litigation lawyers can provide practical advice to help resolve the dispute quickly and cost effectively.

Where possible we seek to resolve disputes using alternative resolution methods such as mediation and arbitration, which are more informal and less adversarial than a court trial. If court is necessary, we will pursue your case robustly and efficiently. Whichever route may be necessary, we will seek the best and most cost effective result on your behalf.

Our Property Litigation lawyers can help with:

  • Rent and service charge disputes
  • Possession and forfeiture claims
  • Compulsory purchase claims
  • Upper Tribunal Lands Chambers (formerly known as Lands Tribunal) claims
  • Business tenancy renewals under the Landlord and Tenant Act 1954
  • Dilapidations claims and disputes regarding repair, decoration or yielding up covenants
  • Rent review disputes
  • Break clauses disputes
  • Professional negligence claims regarding property
  • Leasehold enfranchisement / lease extensions / right to manage

  • Restrictive covenants disputes
  • Rights of way and easement disputes
  • Tenant’s insolvency
