Landlords & Tenants Agreements

Landlord or tenant, when it comes to taking care of legal and official matters, having someone on your side who always focuses on your best interests, and truly appreciates your aims and aspirations, makes all the difference. With Sedgwick Legal, it’s all precisely what you’ll get.

We’ve been taking care of legal matters for landlords and commercial tenants the length and breadth of the North West for more than 50 years. Over these years, our clients have told us how they value our understanding of the challenges they face, and also the way we always focus on their commercial goals, because we know how much they mean.

It’s important that, as a landlord or tenant, you are supported by people who consider your business as important as their own. At Sedgwick Legal, we offer a personal service: one that involves getting to know you over time, so we can make sure all we do for you is of the utmost relevance and always in your very best interests. Whatever we’d like to see happen in our own business, we’ll make sure happens in yours.

We look after everything you may face as a landlord or tenant, including:

  • Drafting of leases and tenancy agreements
  • Grants and assignments of commercial leases
  • Lease renewals, extensions and variations
  • Lease valuations and surrenders
  • Covenant enforcement
  • Sub-lettings
  • Possession proceedings
  • Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 Notices & Proceedings
  • Service charge recovery
  • Right to manage claims
  • Rent reviews
  • Dilapidations

Specialised expertise for landlords 

If you’re a landlord, whether you let commercial premises or residential property, you’ll find our substantial and very specialist experience brings added value when you’re taking, granting, renewing or terminating commercial leases. 

It’s vital to realise that specialised knowledge is incredibly important when dealing with any agreement, even if the contract appears to be straightforward. The various Acts introduced over the years have, unfortunately, tended to complicate things. Working with Sedgwick Legal means you’ll have that all-important peace of mind, even when negotiations become complex. You’ll also know that our overall aim is to protect your key valuable asset: your property.

Commercially sound guidance for commercial tenants

If you’re a commercial tenant, then working in your best interests could mean we’ll be negotiating with your landlord to ensure your rent is kept as low as possible. We’ll also keenly defend your right to sell on, underlet or use the property for alternative purposes should the need arise in the future. It’s all about maintaining flexibility for you so you’ve always got your options open, because we know how important that is in business.

Landlord and tenant disputes

Whilst we work hard for our clients to head off issues before they escalate, from time to time it may be you find yourself in a situation where you need support to resolve a dispute. There are lots of ways to do this and, because we have a balanced understanding of both sides having worked with landlords and tenants for so long, we will intuitively know the best approach for a swift outcome that works well for everyone involved.

If you are a landlord with residential or commercial properties anywhere in the North West, or rent commercial premises in the same region, we’re here to help with all the personalised advice and guidance you need. It all starts with a good chat so we can get to know you. We can do this at your place, or ours: whichever you prefer. Give us a call and we’ll arrange a time.
