If you are looking for basic information on residential landlord/tenant disputes and leasehold issues we would recommend you visit the government funded Leasehold Advisory Service site which contains a wealth of free information on common issues and problems. James Brenan is a frequent contributor to many of the advice guides available on the website.
For some FAQs on commercial leases the following links may be helpful.
We believe in practical solutions that will save you time and money and if we believe that mediation rather than litigation will achieve a better result for you, we will advise you to pursue that course of action.
If you would like advice about a property dispute or potential property litigation please call our property team on 020 7831 0101 or email us using the 'get in touch' link on this page.
