Landlord & Tenant: Small details, large consequences

We provide in-depth practical experience and have a well-deserved reputation for addressing and resolving those ultimately crucial little details. This enables us to be perfectly placed to advise both landlords and tenants.

You wouldn’t leave drafting a lease to a law firm that only has sufficient skills to buy the building. Fortunately, that’s not an issue with Memery Crystal, given our experience both in property acquisitions and disposals, and acting for landlords and tenants. When acting for landlords, we make sure the lease covers every aspect of the commercial terms. When acting for tenants, we devote an equal level of attention to ensuring their rights are protected.
We’re often asked to resolve landlord and tenant disputes. We succeed where others fail, which is why we continue to attract so many landlord and tenant clients, from small single properties to extensive portfolios.
