Landlord and Tenant Law
Disputes & Litigation solicitors dealing with Landlord and Tenant Disputes in Dorset
Landlord and tenant disputes occur in both a commercial and residential context.
In the commercial sphere, we advise both landlords and tenants on a range of issues.
Landlords require advice on a range of issues, including recovery of rent arrears, breaches of covenants in a lease as well as options relating to termination of the lease for breach on the part of the tenant.
Disputes also arise in relation to dilapidations to the property which is the subject matter of lease both during and at the end of lease term.
Tenants may require advice in relation to failures by the landlord to honour their obligations under the lease or, to defend any claims brought by the landlord.
In the residential context, we act for both landlords and tenants in relation to recovery of rent arrears, possession proceedings under the Housing Act and associated enforcement of judgments and court orders obtained.
