In recent times more and more of our clients find themselves as Landlords of residential or commercial properties which they own. Wherever there is a Landlord there will also be a Tenant or indeed a Sub-Tenant and we also have considerable experience acting for people who are letting property.
In order to avoid difficulties arising in the relationship between a Landlord and a Tenant it is important at the outset that a clear written agreement be entered into by both parties so that their respective rights and obligations are well defined and understood.
Many questions must be answered when preparing a Lease or Letting Agreement, be it for a small residential premises or a large multi-unit multi- purpose commercial property.
An agreement which satisfactorily resolves questions of this nature will greatly assist in fostering a positive and mutually beneficial relationship between the Landlord and Tenant.
