Real estate disputes

Property disputes need a fast assessment of complex issues, clear advice and decisive action. We have a dedicated and experienced team of highly regarded property litigators who work extensively in conjunction with our real estate team to provide a seamless solution.

Much of the team’s work involves early stage troubleshooting and dispute avoidance, or advisory work in relation to risks identified on acquisition or disposal of property. The team works across a number of business sectors, acting for both landlords and tenants in relation to property management issues as well as for property owners, occupiers, investors and developers in relation to the whole range of contentious property issues.

Whilst we can resolve many disputes at an early stage, we are experienced in pursuing cases through the courts, the Property Tribunal and by mediation; and our approach is centred around ongoing monitoring of risk, merit and strategy.

The types of work undertaken by the Spearing Waite real estate dispute resolution team include:

  • Hostile and non-hostile lease renewals and other issues under the Landlord and Tenant Act 1954
  • Dilapidations
  • Forfeiture and relief from forfeiture
  • Rent review disputes
  • Service charge disputes
  • Boundary and party wall disputes
  • Restrictive covenants
  • Possession claims
  • Disputes relating to contracts for the sale and purchase of property
  • Rent recovery
  • Property related professional negligence claims
