When it comes to owning or managing real estate, there is a lot of legislation, and it’s wide-ranging. All the rights and obligations applicable to tenants and landlords also have to be taken into account. At Baker Tilly Legal Advisory, we can advise and guide you in the fields of tenancy and property law. Examples include the purchase of new commercial premises, or assessing an existing lease for landlords as well as tenants. We are happy to help commercial clients as well as private individuals.
Advice and guidance on property and tenancy law
If you are running your business in commercial premises, you have to deal with property and/or tenancy law. As a property owner, buyer or seller, a landlord or tenant, you may encounter various challenges. Even if you’re not dealing with problems right now, it may be beneficial for us to advise you on your current contracts.
An experienced team at your side
As soon as you occupy or manage a business premises, you’ll be dealing with property and/or tenancy law. Perhaps you own the building and are looking to sell it, for instance to the company. Your company may rent the premises from you or, alternatively, your company is leasing the building to a third party. Sometimes tenants fail to pay the rent on time or at all, which puts you in a difficult position.
Whatever the case may be, we are in a position to help you with all your questions about property and tenancy law, thanks to our years of experience and broad knowledge. Advice can also be helpful when it comes to avoiding issues. For example, it may be useful to seek advice on existing leases, such as checking whether the provisions of the lease still comply with all applicable laws and regulations, and whether the agreements made are in keeping with the market. This may be an issue if you decide to unilaterally increase the rent. At Baker Tilly Legal Advisory, we can often assist you in these matters.
Assistance matched to your situation
At Legal Advisory, we combine a wide range of expertise to assist you as things stand now, but also to ensure that you are well-prepared for the future. Our personal approach, which focuses on your specific situation, is key in this.
