Intrepretation and Enforcement of Lease Terms

Meaning of Lease Terms

Leases come in many different forms. Many are old and use “legal jargon”. It can often to be difficult to interpret what a particular clause means and sometimes the lease will contradict itself, be ambiguous or simply not deal with a particular point.

We can help you unravel the true meaning of the lease/particular clause and how this impacts on you.

Whether you want to take the enforcement action or are on the receiving end of it, we have the expertise to advise you on these issues. We are experienced in negotiating a resolution to such issues or if need be we have the skills to pursue the matter through the court or Tribunal.
