Many residential tenants are not aware of their rights and duties within a landlord-tenant relationship. With proper advice, a tenant can negotiate preferable leasing terms; particularly those terms that dictate rent, payment structure, and termination. Similarly, commercial tenants can also negotiate terms relating to matters including maintenance, enjoyment, and renewal of tenancy. Landlords also have rights and duties within the landlord-tenant relationship and often need legal representation as well.
Where a dispute arises between a landlord and tenant for matters such as rent, management fees, repairs and renewals, both the tenant and landlord may have the dispute heard by the Lands Tribunal. The Lands Tribunal handles most landlord-tenant disputes and provides a substantially simplified court procedure for such matters as possession, building management, compensation, compulsory sales, and appeals cases.
