Professional Services

The department has considerable experience of advising both landlords and tenants on the lease renewal process, both for tenancies protected by the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 and those outside.

We employ the very best tactics to ensure excellent results in the renewal process, whether it be for a landlord or tenant. Close liaison with the client’s solicitors is essential in the process in order to protect rights and ensure that the documentation is correct, reflecting the terms agreed.

All clients are provided with detailed advice throughout the lease renewal process. The partners are experienced in acting as Expert Witnesses both in Court and P.A.C.T (Professional Arbitration on Court Terms), although the principle objective is always to try and achieve the very best result by way of negotiation.  The department is also very active in lease re-gearing, acting on behalf of both landlords and tenants exploring opportunities to add value to the landlord & tenant relationship.
