In a sector with so many different interests and transactions, disputes and disagreements are inevitable. We advise developers, investors and occupiers on how best to avoid, manage and resolve real estate issues, wherever they arise. Our experts understand the problems from every side, utilising the knowledge from our wider Real Estate department to inform their approach. We listen to your priorities, and use our skills to reach a swift resolution.
From landlords with large investment property portfolios or to those with just one house or unit, our team understand what you are trying to achieve in both the commercial and residential arena. We help with all kinds of real estate issues, including, but not limited to, transactions, agricultural disputes, development agreements, nuisance and boundary complaints and restrictive covenants.
We can also act on a wide range of landlord and tenant problems, professional negligence, real estate issues arising from probate scenarios and insolvency of tenants and landlords. We don’t just work with retailers and corporates in the property space either. We have helped educational establishments, charities, nursing homes and councils to find successful conclusions to their real estate disputes.
We know that matters involving real estate can be costly, so we try and keep the costs down to an appropriate level for your dispute. Where possible, we try and avoid court, instead seeking resolutions via alternative methods that can help make a considerable difference to your time and finances.
At each stage, we will be upfront and transparent on what fees will be incurred and we will keep monitoring the costs throughout the process. In every instance, we ensure a commercial approach is followed, understanding what you want to achieve, and will only suggest more formal processes where we think it is appropriate and cost-effective to do so.
