With a large amount of property across the country being let, including farms and agricultural land, residential houses and commercial properties, invariably issues regularly arise that require expert assistance.
After initially marketing and promoting land or property to let and finding a suitable tenant, an appropriate tenancy agreement or licence agreement must be prepared, together often with a schedule of condition / record of condition. During the course of a tenancy a rent review may become due, often requiring the service of correctly drafted rent review notices, and subsequently expert rent negotiation is required to achieve the best outcome.
When a landlord or tenant wish to terminate a tenancy, it is normally necessary for a correctly drafted Notice to Quit or Notice of Surrender to be prepared and served on the other party. Upon termination, there may be issues to consider and deal with such as dilapidations, improvements, and tenant right valuations.
At every stage it is essential that all current legislation is adhered to, in order to avoid potential problems. The legislation surrounding the occupation of land and property has become ever more complex and specialist assistance is often required to help with letting and management decisions.
