Real Estate Litigation

Real Estate Litigation

At Joelson, our Real Estate Litigation team advises its clients on a wide range of disputes in relation to both residential and commercial properties.

We regularly advise landlords, owners, occupiers, tenants, property managers and developers, in relation to a wide range of properties including retail, offices, industrial, leisure, restaurants, pubs and residential.

We work closely with the Real Estate team at Joelson to provide strategic advice to assist clients in achieving their commercial objectives. We are committed to helping clients avoid disputes wherever possible and often advise our clients on the preventative measures available to them to minimise risk. However, where disputes do arise and you need to take steps to enforce or defend your rights, we provide clear advice to guide you through the legal proceedings process, offering practical and commercial solutions to our clients throughout.

We are highly experienced in dealing with claims in the Court of Appeal, High Court, County Court, the First-Tier Tribunal (Property Chamber) and the Upper Tribunal (Lands Chamber) and in settling disputes using mediation and other alternative dispute resolution methods.

  • Opposed and unopposed lease renewals under the Landlord and Tenant Act 1954
  • Interim and terminal dilapidations
  • Development and overage disputes
  • Property management advice
  • Enforcement of lease covenants and other contractual obligations
