Our dispute resolution team has particular expertise in advising clients in relation to their property portfolios, investments and land related interests.

We understand that relationships between landlord and tenant, property owners and contractors are complex and can be difficult at times. When things go wrong, you can count on Forbes' property litigation solicitors for the right support and clear advice on options.

Our team regularly represent commercial property owners, landlords, investors, developers, local authorities, housing associations, charities, public bodies, pension trustees and agricultural/ farming businesses. We advise on broad range of land and property disputes both in and out of court including:

  • commercial leases
  • enforcement of covenants and of guarantees
  • dilapidations and disrepair
  • rent arrears
  • assignments & underleases
  • options & overage agreements
  • conditional development contracts
  • planning and boundary disputes
  • construction contracts (JCT & NEC)
  • issues arising from sub-contracting
  • disputed titles
  • trespass, prescriptive rights & adverse possession
  • disputes between co-owners and neighbour
  • procurement

We advise landlords and tenants on lease termination, including s.27 notices, break notices and forfeiture. Our solicitors also routinely act in cases arising out of the statutory protection of business tenants under the Landlord and Tenant Act 1954 and take conduct of lease renewal proceedings from the service of a s.25 or s.26 notice right through to trial if needs be. We work closely with specialist barristers, surveyors and land agents both regionally and nationally.

Our solicitors have conduct of proceedings in the County Court, the Business and Property Court, Technology and Construction section of the High Court and the Lands Tribunal.

For landlords of residential properties, we also provide a bespoke fixed fee service Landlord Complete to handle possession proceedings and arrears of rent claims.
