LANDLORD AND TENANT
Our expert Landlord and Tenant solicitors at O’Gorman Solicitors are skilled in dealing with both contentious and non-contentious aspects of Landlord and Tenant Law and we remain up to date with the latest legal developments in this area of law. Landlord & Tenant Law is an extremely complex area. When entering a lease both the landlord and the tenant need to be fully advised of the rights and obligations being created. For instance from a tenants point of view a long lease may create certain rights of renewal for a tenant however such a lease is generally fully repairing and insuring. These leases can contain extremely onerous clauses if not carefully negotiated on behalf of a tenant. From a landlords point of view the benefit of such a long lease must also be weighed against the granting of renewal rights and also against important VAT considerations. Therefore it is essential that both a landlord and tenant obtain specialist and expert advice before entering a commercial lease.
