Landlord & Tenant Renewals

The renewal of a tenancy provides an opportunity for both parties to consider future options so when a business tenancy is due for renewal, this can trigger areas of dispute between landlord and tenant. Disputes can damage a business and affect a landlord’s investment so any disputes should be addressed quickly in order to minimise potential disruption and loss. Indeed, timely communication and proactive management in the lead up to a lease renewal can reduce the likelihood of disputes arising.
