Property litigation solicitors
Our property litigation solicitors provide a full dispute resolution service for public and private sector businesses, based on highly developed negotiation and litigation skills.
Whenever property disputes occur, the needs of all parties are always the same: to achieve a speedy resolution with minimum cost and disruption to normal activities. Much of this depends on an informed understanding of the legal issues and experience in negotiating satisfactory settlements.
How our property litigation solicitors can help you
Handling property disputes is one of Weightmans' key areas of expertise and our property litigation solicitors act for public and private sector landlords, tenants and real estate developers across a client base of local authorities, NHS Trusts, housing associations, social landlords, blue-chip retailers, owner-managed businesses and private individuals.
We realise that, as a client, you need a service that is professional, proactive and focused on helping you achieve your goals. We understand, too, that property litigation may not be the best means to achieve your objectives — and where other forms of dispute resolution, including mediation and arbitration, are more appropriate, we'll choose that route.
From our lengthy experience, we also recognise that a commercial property dispute needn't end a business relationship. We're sensitive to all the issues involved and seek to protect your interests long term while resolving immediate problems.
We use bespoke case management systems to ensure that all documents are accurate and consistent, court procedures are followed and deadlines met. All our activities are based on highly efficient internal systems, which help us provide a streamlined and genuinely cost-effective service.
Our services include:
- Claims for disrepair
- Contested lease renewals and break options/surrenders/forfeitures
- Rent review arbitrations and expert determinations
- Enforcing/avoiding restrictive covenants/easements
- Option, overage and other real estate agreement disputes
- Property finance disputes and issues relating to real estate in an insolvency context
- Injunctive relief, including obtaining access to tenants’ and neighbours’ properties
- Eviction of squatters and travellers
- Professional negligence claims
- Boundary disputes.
