Commercial Property Disputes

Commercial Property Disputes

Here at Hedges we've been providing property advice to our clients since 1789. Whilst the world has moved on almost beyond recognition since we first opened our doors, one thing that hasn't changed is that disagreements over property can and do happen.

Our specialist lawyers have expertise across a whole range or property disputes. We can advise at a very early stage to head off possible conflict, stepping in early to strategically bring an end to difficult situations before they escalate. Where that isn't possible, we can look at a range of options to deal with a dispute.

The reality is that very few people ever want to litigate on property issues: the delays, stress and cost can just be too high. Options such as round table meetings, mediation or arbitration can provide out of court solutions. And if litigation is the only way to sort things out, we have a proven track record of great court outcomes for our clients.

Our property litigation solicitors work closely with the transactional team to ensure that your rights are protected from the outset but we're also here if things don't go according to plan.

We can assist with a wide range of disputes, including:

  • Dilapidations
  • Rental arrears: including debt recovery and forfeiture
  • Boundary disputes
  • Rent reviews
  • Lease renewals
  • The interpretation and enforcement of covenants
  • Rights to light
  • Obtaining landlords’ consents

We are known for our no-nonsense business orientated approach and for our ability to find alternative solutions in situations where there may be conflict. Where necessary, however, we will happily represent you either in court proceedings or third party determinations: with our experience of litigation from the County Court through to the Supreme Court (House of Lords) you are assured of the best advice tailored to your particular situation and needs.
