Whatever business you’re in, your property is a vital part of your day-to-day operation.  However, it is also one of the parts that need to be managed most carefully. 

Whether you are a tenant or a landlord, we can provide all of the property support required to make sure your business can continue to function and grow without costly or irritating interruptions.

If you want to expand into or rent out new premises, we can help you negotiate the terms of your new lease.  If your lease has expired or is just about to, we will clarify your legal position and put together the new lease or lease extension you’ll need.

Alternatively, you may be looking to alter your premises, either to allow your business to progress or to make your property more attractive to new tenants.  We can explain what alterations could be made and how to make them without breaching any existing terms or upsetting your tenant or landlord.

If you’ve reached a point where your current premises are no longer suitable, you may want to look at a transfer or a sub-let. We can discuss your requirements and help you reach the best outcome with your tenant or landlord.

If you want to terminate a current lease, we can explain your statutory and contractual positions and work out how best to manage the termination and the other issues, like dilapidations, that tend to be involved with a termination.

If you are a landlord you may occasionally find yourself in dispute with your tenants.  Similarly, if you are a tenant you may occasionally find yourself in dispute with your landlord.  Disagreements can arise easily; it may be on the back of a rent review, it may be because of a failure to pay rent, it may be over a breach of maintenance or dilapidations obligations or over the renewal of your lease.

Whatever the cause, we are here to help you unravel your position and guide you through the dispute so that you reach the best possible outcome.

Each year we offer a range of CPD-accredited seminars presented by industry specialists and experienced presenters covering a variety of topics relevant to Jersey commercial property law. Our seminars are well-thought of by surveyors, architects and other commercial property professionals as they provide details of the latest developments and provide a forum to share ideas and experiences with like-minded peers.

‘One of the best CPDs I’ve been to in a long time as it intermingled general IUL law with specific local cases which was really very good.’

‘Best CPD available’

‘ One of the most informative seminars I have attended more recently. Thank you to all of the presenters for an excellent, relative and informative lunch time event.’
