Landlord tenant disputes

Commercial landlord and tenant disputes can arise when there is a disagreement between a landlord and tenant regarding the terms of a commercial lease. In New South Wales (NSW), commercial leases can be complex and detailed, and it is important for both landlords and tenants to understand their legal rights and obligations.

At Biz Lawyers and Advisory, we offer comprehensive legal services to assist with landlord-tenant disputes in NSW. We understand that disputes between landlords and tenants can be complex and emotionally charged, and we are here to help you navigate these challenges effectively.

Rent and Outgoings
One common area of dispute between commercial landlords and tenants relates to rent and outgoings. Rent and outgoings are typically set out in the lease agreement, and disputes can arise if the landlord believes that the tenant has not paid the correct amount or if the tenant believes that the landlord has overcharged them.

Repairs and Maintenance
Another common area of dispute between commercial landlords and tenants relates to repairs and maintenance. The lease agreement will typically set out the respective responsibilities of the landlord and tenant in relation to repairs and maintenance, and disputes can arise if one party believes that the other party has not fulfilled their obligations.

Termination of Lease
Disputes can also arise when a commercial lease is terminated. The lease agreement will typically set out the circumstances in which the lease can be terminated and the notice period that must be given. If the landlord or tenant believes that the other party has breached the lease agreement, they may seek to terminate the lease. Disputes can arise if one party believes that the termination was not valid or if there are issues with the return of any security deposit.
