Rent Reviews, Arbitrations & Lease Restructuring
We exploit our depth of experience and detailed market knowledge of rental transactions and values, allied with thorough understanding of legal issues to secure the most favourable settlements for our clients.
Similar skills are deployed working with the firm’s agency team to negotiate the most beneficial lease clauses for our clients looking to lease or sell property.
Disputes sometimes require settlement by a third party (whether by reference to an Arbitrator or Independent Expert), or in the Courts. This requires skill in preparing written submissions or proofs of evidence and our standing as Expert Witness is enhanced by our proven track record.
