Rent Review

Our team has extensive experience in advising landlords and tenants on the rent review process, acting on properties across London and the South East. As experienced negotiators, with a deep knowledge of case law, we obtain exemplary results on behalf of clients.

The team acts on properties within the office, retail, restaurant and industrial sectors, but also has considerable experience in the leisure industry. All clients have regular contact with senior team members who personally manage each case and can provide detailed advice whenever it is needed.

As part of our service, we regularly produce Expert Reports for Arbitrators and Independent Experts, liaising with leading Counsel on legal disputes and providing a comprehensive case management service.

Lease Renewal

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

In a fast and changing market, tactics are a very important consideration in any lease renewal and our considerable experience means we consider every scenario and are strategic about the best tactics to adopt. Close liaison with the client's solicitors is also an essential to protect rights and ensure documentation is correct, reflecting the terms agreed. The department is very active in lease re-gearing, acting on behalf of landlords and tenants exploring opportunities to add value to the landlord and tenant relationship.

The team are also experienced in acting as Expert Witnesses in Court and P.A.C.T (Professional Arbitration on Court Terms), although the principal objective is always to try and achieve the very best result by way of negotiation.
