Landlord and Tenant 1954 Act lease renewals alongside our Dispute Resolution colleagues

We also recognise the benefit to you of being able to budget accurately for costs and as such are happy to work on a fixed-fee basis.

Recent Cases
  • We led work for nationally recognised café on its relocation to a larger premises in London at the end of their existing lease.  The new property was an assignment of an existing lease and we managed the work via several sets of solicitors to ensure the lease assignment was completed to fit in with the deadline of the end of the existing lease.
  • We acted for a landowner in granting a large number of their commercial units to the same tenant in a large and wide ranging transaction which included several new leases, option agreements to take further leases,  a licence for works to deal with substantial rebuilds of the existing properties and also issues with dilapidations from previous tenants.
  • We acted for a national charity on its strategic London head office relocation.  We undertook extensive due diligence in respect of the new leasehold interests, negotiating and settling the terms of the assignment of the existing lease and were also involved in advising on the termination of our clients existing leasehold properties.
