Landlord and Tenant

Morris & Bates have a great deal of experience in dealing with both residential and commercial leases, acting on behalf of both landlords and tenants.

Our solicitors can offer assistance with drafting your tenancy agreements and advice on the new requirements in relation to the Government’s Tenant Deposit Schemes.

Our landlord and tenant solicitors can also arrange for the preparation of long residential leases of individual flats or a series of flats within a block and can arrange for the incorporation of a limited company to deal with the day-to-day management of the block itself.

We also deal with commercial leasehold matters, acting for landlords and tenants on the grant or assignment of commercial leases and can provide the necessary advice to help tenants in their new business ventures. We are also able to assist in the negotiation and completion of rent reviews.

We are also able to assist in the negotiation of leasehold enfranchisement cases, in both residential and commercial scenarios, whereby, under certain circumstances, tenants can purchase the freehold reversion from their landlord.

Our litigation department also has vast experience of dealing with landlord and tenant disputes, including rent arrears and breaches of covenant.
