Landlord and Tenant
Commercial Landlord and Tenant Solicitors
For both landlords and tenants in a business setting, many rules and regulations are in place to protect both parties.
The laws surrounding tenancy in a commercial property govern various aspects, including the property’s safety and the landlord’s legal responsibilities to their tenant, employees and others.

The Landlord and Tenant Act 1954 (LTA) gives commercial property tenants rights of occupancy, known as ‘security of tenure’. The act sets out the rules that a commercial property’s landlord and tenant(s) must follow.
Tenants possess the right to renew their lease and remain in the property following the lease term’s conclusion, provided they continue to pay rent and do not violate any tenancy agreement terms. Upon the lease term’s end, the act grants tenants the legal right to petition a court to initiate a new lease term.
Failure to adhere to the laws set out in The Landlord and Tenant Act 1954 may lead to legal intervention, depending on the extent of the matter. To prevent this, seeking advice from a trusted lawyer is vital. Your legal professional will ensure that, as a landlord or tenant of commercial premises, you are aware of all of your legal obligations and have acted accordingly.
