Commercial Leasing Disputes
Commercial leasing disputes result in revenue loss and negatively impact otherwise smooth-running organizations. They typically arise when one party fails to meet their obligation in the tenant-landlord relationship. When business professionals cannot resolve their differences, the problem may require commercial litigation.
At George, Murray, Shipley, Bell, LLP, our experienced civil litigation lawyers work with property owners and tenants to resolve commercial leasing disputes cost-effectively. Before wading into protracted commercial litigation, we work diligently to settle differences, so the parties can focus on achieving their company goals. These are ways we can get you the resolution you deserve.
Further Your Commercial Lease Rights & Interests
The Commercial Tenancies Act outlines the rights and obligations of landlords and tenants. When one side fails to meet their duties or responsibilities, the harmed party can take proactive measures such as filing a commercial lawsuit and taking them to court.
But as a business leader, you recognize that commercial litigation can prove costly. That’s why we first engage in out-of-court negotiations to resolve disagreements in a way that allows people to get back to business. But if the other side refuses to act responsibly, we’re prepared to take the following actions on your behalf.
- File a levy of distress against a delinquent tenant’s on-premises goods for arrears.
- Terminate a tenant’s lease and seek arrears as well as future rent.
- File for injunctive relief due to lease forfeiture.
- Litigate disputes regarding sublet leases.
- Take landlord-tenant disputes to Small Claim Court if under $25,000.
It’s crucial for tenants to thoroughly review a commercial lease before entering into a binding agreement. And landlords would be well served to have an experienced business law firm craft commercial lease agreement that protect their rights and interests.
