Fletcher King undertakes a wide range of Landlord and Tenant instructions across the whole of the United Kingdom. We cover a wide spectrum of property types including offices, industrial, retail, retail warehouse and leisure. We act for private and public sector occupiers, regional and national companies and landlords, funds and financial institutions.
The review process provides the landlord with an opportunity to ensure that the rent payable reflects current market values. The revised rent will directly impact future strategy for an owner and occupier with landlords seeking to maximise their returns and tenants wishing to minimise costs. Each review must be handled strictly in accordance with their particular lease.
Fletcher King has the experience and expertise to assess the respective values of various legal clauses and achieve the most advantageous outcome for our clients.
We have up to the minute market knowledge and computer databases to support the legal and technical information with hard data.
Economic uncertainty and changes to occupier requirements in recent years have resulted in significant transformation within the property market.
Whilst the lease renewal process can bring respective parties into dispute, it also presents both parties with an opportunity to review their options.
We advise our clients on the best strategy to suit their individual requirements. We liaise closely with your solicitors and legal team to ensure that the appropriate notices are served at the optimum time.
The Landlord and Tenant department is fully appraised on the ever changing legal reforms which can have a major bearing on the appropriate property strategy.

At all times we lead the client through the process in an objective manner and seek to simplify the legal complexities.
We pride ourselves on securing the best settlement expeditiously and at minimum cost. Should the process lead to Court hearings, our specialist qualified individuals can give both written and oral impartial evidence to a Court in compliance with the Civil Procedure Rules.
