Landlord & Tenant Disputes


Avoiding and resolving disputes requires a forward-thinking and proactive approach.

When you can see potential disputes coming, you’re able to manage them accordingly, and avoid costly proceedings. That’s why we encourage talking and clear communication to our clients – helping you identify potential future problems and broker solutions. However, sometimes disputes are unavoidable, in property matters as much as in other areas.

Whether you’re a Landlord, Tenant or Lender dealing with a dispute in commercial or residential property, our specialist Litigation and Dispute Resolution team can help.

We can help you with:

  • Service Charge disputes (including recovery of Service Charges, Tenants rights, Tribunal proceedings, and disputes with resident-owned Freehold companies)
  • Forfeiture, injunctions, the recovery ground rent, applications by Tenants for consent and/or the enforcement of covenants under a lease
  • Mortgage possession, and residential and/or commercial possession claims
  • Boundary disputes (including the question of Basement and Vault ownership)
  • Breach of lease disputes
  • The appointment of liquidators, administrators and/or receivers
  • Representation at relevant Tribunals (e.g. First Tier Tribunal [Property Chamber]) or courts in relation to any of the above, or in relation to leasehold enfranchisement disputes
