Possession claims arise when a landlord, who has rented out a property to a tenant, wishes to regain possession of their property. More often than not, possession disputes arise when a tenant wishes to remain in the property or refuses to leave, but the landlord does not agree.
Property possession claims can be long, drawn out and complex, particularly when not handled correctly. At Muldoon Britton, we have expert property solicitors who are able to aid you in your possession claim, and we are able to act on behalf whether you are a landlord or a tenant. So whether you are the landlord and wish to repossess your property, or you are the tenant and dispute the reasons for repossession, we’re happy and able to assist.
As a landlord, there are certain procedures that you have a legal obligation to follow when it comes to trying to repossess your commercial property or land. There are also specific rules and agreements set out in the commercial tenancy agreement. If either of these matters are not handled correctly, you could end up in a worse position than when you started and cause yourself further difficulties and financial loss.
If you are a landlord, you will need to commence possession proceedings unless the tenant within your commercial property agrees to voluntarily vacate the property. For corporate tenants, you may dispute the landlord’s reasons or may wish to counter-claim that the repossession is disrupting business and would cause financial loss if no local suitable premises can be found.
Whatever the situation, Muldoon Britton’s expert litigation lawyers can help you so give us a call.
