Lease & Tenancy Agreements

Leases and tenancy agreements cover a wide range of situations.

Here are some examples:

  • Medium-term leases of commercial premises such as department stores, office blocks and factory premises
  • Shorter-term leases of shops and offices
  • Domestic leases for the letting of a house
  • Short-term tenancy agreements
  • Agricultural tenancies
  • Tenancies of allotment gardens and even licences to occupy

For landlords and tenants of both business and domestic properties, the law is extremely technical and regulations must be strictly observed if your interests are to be protected.

We can advise and prepare leases and tenancy agreements for you whether you’re a landlord or a tenant.

We can deal with: rent reviews, renewals, claims for dilapidations, proceedings for possession, arrears of rent, breaches of covenant (to repair and insure, for example), specified use of a property, as well as generally advising you on all the aspects of your lease or tenancy.

Please contact Tony Gibson in Newcastle or Derwent Gibson or Michael Macgregor in Hexham.
