Commercial Landlord and Property Disputes

Being a commercial landlord can be lucrative and rewarding, but there are often difficulties that arise. Disputes between commercial landlords and their tenants are common. There are many issues that can cause disagreements, though they most usually relate to the condition of the property, continued occupation of the property or who is responsible for upkeep and repair.

The onus is on a commercial landlord to ensure that everyone knows where they stand from the very beginning. A landlord and tenant’s responsibilities can be set out in the terms of a lease, and it is crucial that any commercial lease is clear and covers every eventuality.

Commercial landlords also need to be aware that any commercial tenants are automatically protected under the Landlord and Tenant Act 1954 (LTA). The Act gives tenants a ‘security of tenure’, which means they have a right to renew a lease and stay in the property after the lease term, as long as they continue to pay rent and have not breached any terms of their tenancy agreement.

Commercial tenants enjoy security of tenure unless it is specifically contracted out in the terms of a lease.
