Property, whether a family home, family-owned business, or business premises, is very important to those who own or rent it. So, when a dispute arises that could have a significant impact on the use or enjoyment of the property, it is essential that the issues between the parties are dealt with quickly and effectively.

At Murray Beith Murray, our dispute resolution and litigation solicitors regularly advise and represent clients involved in residential and commercial property disputes. We understand the risks for our clients involved in these matters, including significant disruption to their business or personal life and loss of time and money. That is why our expert dispute resolution lawyers aim to resolve the dispute as quickly and cost-effectively as possible, often by mediation, arbitration and other forms of alternative dispute resolution (ADR). However, where court proceedings are unavoidable we will draw on our considerable experience to provide expert representation.

For practical and strategic advice on any commercial or residential property dispute, contact our specialist dispute resolution solicitors today.

Residential property disputes

Disputes concerning owners or renters of residential properties can take many forms, including:

  • Breach of missives
  • Boundary issues
  • Landlord and tenant disagreements

Landlord and tenant disputes

It is important for landlords and tenants to be aware of their rights and obligations, as this can help to avoid disputes. However, even with the best intentions, issues can occur – including concerning the terms in the tenancy agreement, rent, repairs, access and evictions. Our solicitors can provide practical and tailored advice for any landlord and tenant situation to ensure our client’s best interests are protected. We will recommend the best dispute resolution option depending on the circumstances involved.

Commercial property disputes

Commercial property disputes can arise in various situations, including if there are issues relating to:

  • Rent arrears
  • Disrepair
  • Changes of use and alterations
  • Subletting and assignment
  • Break options
  • Development agreement disputes, including in relation to title conditions and burdens

Property disputes present significant risks for companies, including damage to reputation and client relationships and can divert vital resources from your business. Our lawyers help protect commercial clients from these problems with advice on how to avoid disputes and how to manage the risks of potential disputes. For example, we can help businesses prepare clear and precise terms in their property leases. Where a dispute is inevitable, our lawyers will help you reach an expeditious and cost-effective solution.
