Tenants Breaching Leases
Owning a commercial property is a very common investment.
E C Legal does not generally prepare leases but we do chase tenants for money when they breach those leases.
Remedies available to landlords include:
Bringing the lease to an end and locking a tenant out of the property. This needs to be done with great care as there are serious ramifications for landlords if the proper process is not followed. It is essential that appropriate notices are given and that any eviction is done in accordance with the law.
There are legal principles that cover how a landlord needs to deal with any property left by the tenant in the property following the tenants departure.
Recovery of monies due under the lease. If the lease has come to an end, this is usually a fairly straightforward exercise of making demands and taking the matter through the courts or tribunals if the tenant does not pay the amount sought. However, there are occasions where the lease is continuing and where a more delicate approach is required to maintain as good a relationship as possible between the landlord and the tenant.
E C Legal is available to assist in all of these situations.
