Protecting your property interests

The relationship between landlords and tenants is a delicate balancing act. Putting the right steps in place to ensure a harmonious relationship and both parties can benefit over the course of a tenancy. Yet there are unfortunately times when this relationship can become strained and litigation is inevitable.

Whether you are a landlord or tenant of a property, getting the best legal support can help you to protect the interests of your business. At Sweeney Miller Law we work closely with landlords and tenants of both commercial and residential properties, representing them in disputes.

Why do you need a litigator for your property dispute?

Property disputes should always be handled with great care. This type of court action can take on a number of forms, depending on whether the dispute is between businesses or between a private tenant and landlord.

Under any of these circumstances it is important to be confident in your legal position and have a trusted adviser on hand that can provide you with a balanced and pragmatic viewpoint.

Should it be impossible to resolve your issue with a landlord or tenant, our litigators will represent you over the course of a trial, working tirelessly to achieve the result you deserve.

Some of the most frequent issues we encounter are:

  • Possession proceedings (both residential and commercial)
  • Rent arrears recovery
  • Deposit protection claims (both pursuing and defending)
  • Dilapidations issues
  • Boundary disputes

Why choose Sweeney Miller Law as your commercial property dispute solicitors in the North East?

We have built a strong reputation in the North East for working with landlords and tenants in all areas of commercial property law. We pride ourselves on our approachable, innovative and efficient approach to commercial property disputes. Typically, we encourage clients to exhaust all other avenues before resorting to court action – largely to help them save the time, money, resources and stress that are entailed in trial proceedings.

There are times, however, when litigation is the only available course of action in order to get the compensation or resolution that you deserve.
