There are a number of reasons why disagreements about commercial property arise. The two most common areas of dispute typically concern continued occupation of the property and its condition. For example, if you’re a landlord and you want your tenant to leave, you must follow the correct legal procedures, including sending the correct written notices to your tenant and complying with legally imposed time-frames. When it comes to the condition of a property, both landlords and tenants typically have obligations to ensure that the property is looked after and remains in a good state of repair. But even despite the wording of lease terms, when a property falls into disrepair, disagreements often arise about who is responsible for putting things right and when or how repairs should take place. If a commercial property is in disrepair there will need to be an analysis of what should be done to rectify the problem and who needs to do that. Landlord and tenant disagreements aren’t the only possible disputes concerning property. Owners of commercial properties may find themselves involved in property-related disputes with neighbours, for example. Typically, these types of disagreement concern the boundaries of both properties or certain legal rights connected to one of the properties, such as rights of way or rights to light. Your tenant may want to transfer the lease to someone else, they may want to alter the interior of the property or they may want to end it early with your permission. In this section you‘ll find guidance and documents to help you to understand the key legal issues involved in commercial property matters.
