Leasehold agreements can be complex and if the terms of the lease are broken, by either the landlord or the tenant, this can lead to a protracted dispute which can be both stressful and costly.
Some of the most common disputes involve who is responsible for the maintenance of the property.
Other issues may include:
- Forfeiting the lease, being termination of the lease by the Landlord in certain circumstances
- Breach of covenant (breach of lease obligation)
- Lease renewals and extensions where the terms have not been agreed
- Service Charges
- Unauthorised change of use or denying access to a common part of the property
