Landlord & Tenant Disputes
Disputes can arise at all stages of the leasehold process, from the initial negotiation stages, right through to terminating the lease. It is more often than not that a leasehold dispute arises either because the landlord or the tenant has breached their contractual obligations contained within the lease, or because there is a conflict of interest between the parties.
