Landlord & Tenant - Commercial Property Litigation

There are many legal issues that arise between Landlords and Tenants and the SM Commercial team can help you to resolve them. Common legal issues that you could encounter include:

Break Notice Disputes

Failing to comply with a break clause correctly or accepting a defective break can cost your business thousands. We have experience in acting for both Landlords and Tenants and can help you get your break right.

Lease Renewal and Termination

A commercial lease is a big commitment and making sure you have the best terms going forward or deciding if the time is right to look elsewhere, can make a big difference. The lease renewal procedure can be a complex process; we have expertise acting for both landlord and tenants. If your lease has expired or is coming to end why not contact us so we can help you make the right decisions.


Is one of the most complicated areas of commercial property, without advice a wrong word or undue delay can make the difference between a landlord forfeiting a lease or a tenant getting away with a breach.

We have experience acting for landlords and tenants of small, medium and large commercial premises whether it be claims for rent arrears and other breaches of covenant, forfeiture proceedings as well as investigating alternative solutions to legal proceedings.


Whether during the term or at the end of a lease, dilapidations can often be a contentious and expensive issue. In our experience the simplest, most cost effective way to avoid a dispute on dilapidations is to get the right advice before entering into a lease. We have the expertise to help you plan in advance so that dilapidations do not become a headache. However, when things do go wrong, we are there to help at whatever stage of the process.
