Whether you’re the property owner, landlord or tenant in the process of a lease, you must know and understand your grounds when it comes to a residential and living agreement.

With the assistance of our residential property lease solicitors, you will be able to learn more about where you stand and what the laws are surrounding residential leases.


What is a residential lease?

A residential lease is a tenancy agreement between you as the tenant (or tenants) who pay an agreed amount of money to occupy the property belonging to an individual or business (the ‘landlord’). It’s essentially a contract which has been signed and acknowledged by both parties, being the ‘tenant’ and the ‘landlord’.

A tenancy agreement is pivotal in any case. Without one, it makes any case difficult as neither party made any written agreements in terms of their right with the property.

Any agreement for the habitation or rental of a property should be accompanied by a tenancy agreement. It should be clearly set out like a contract and display the key information, whilst clearly displaying acknowledgement from both parties.


Experienced Residential Property Lease Solicitors

Properties across the UK are most commonly leasehold or freehold.

Leasehold is where someone owns a property for a fixed term but not the land where the property sits.

Freehold is where the ownership is for both the property and the land. A freehold also means that the owner owns the land for no time limit.

Our property litigation department are vastly experienced with claims referring to both types of leases. Although leases can be very complex, we’re proficient in dealing with the disputes regarding residential leases.


Our expert residential property lease litigators can advise on:

  • Buying and selling a leasehold property.
  • Extending leases – for both tenants and landlords.
  • Gaining the freehold of an estate.
  • Service charge disputes.
  • Forfeit and breach of leasehold covenants.
