The property market can be unpredictable and one needs to be mindful of the commercial implications of changing trends in this sector. All businesses aim to work within their budgets and strive to keep costs at a minimum. Unfortunately, this may lead to disputes such as commercial tenants failing to meet their rental payments and mortgage liabilities or using the property for proscribed purposes.
We advise a range of commercial freeholders, leaseholders, landlords and tenants in disputes to achieve an effective and mutually beneficial result with a view to preserving relationships. If Court action becomes necessary, we take the appropriate action in disputes relating to breaches of commercial leases, recovering rent and possession proceedings.

Adverse Possession Claims

Adverse possession refers to the process in law whereby ownership in land or property passes to someone who has been in ‘possession’ of it for a specified period of time. Adverse possession claims do not only arise in relation to residential property but can also be relevant to commercial property.
