Landlord & Tenant

At LBB we are able to act as your consultants and provide expert advice, for either landlord or tenants, relating to the negotiation of lease renewals, rent reviews, lease negotiations, valuations and landlord and tenant disputes.

A property is a valuable asset and an essential tool for any business. It is essential to consider any property issues that arise carefully and take specialist advice in respect of them to avoid expensive and costly mistakes.

We provide expert submissions for arbitration or expert determination and as experts in Court if required.

We have acted on a number of leading cases such as Denis & Robinson Ltd v Kiossos Establishment (1987) 54 P&CR 282 concerning a 120,000 sqft, 1906 industrial unit, formerly a railway carriage works in Lancing on the South Coast. The rent review was the subject of one of the leading cases on the issue of willing landlord and willing tenant and is equally important to lease renewals under the Landlord and Tenant Act 1954.

We deal regularly with Commercial Surveys, Dilapidation Advice and Negotiation, Service Charge Disputes and Valuations.

We have particular expertise dealing with strategic leasehold issues and can advise regarding lease surrenders and break clauses.

We act for a number of major Managing Agents, Commercial Occupiers and Private Investors and Owners. We also advise a number of major Institutions, Charities and Housing Associations. Our Clients include KCi Medical, Screen UK, RL Polk & Co and Majestic Wine plc.
