Real-estate dispute resolution

From luxury apartments to entire commercial complexes, if you’re investing hundreds of thousands or even millions of pounds in a property portfolio, disputes can quickly derail your plans. For corporate tenants, a dispute can have an impact on your business and even force you to consider relocating. At IBB Solicitors, our property dispute resolution experts can provide constructive advice to effectively resolve a dispute.

A premium-level service for business and private clients
We provide client-focused expertise that’s tailored to your exact requirements. Our team is widely recognised as one of the leading property litigation teams in London, the Thames Valley and the south east, with clients including corporate tenants, developers, institutions, charities, retailers, asset managers and investors. We also work closely with private clients who may be involved in lease extensions, enfranchisement claims or residential property disputes.

We can advise you on all property-related disputes including:

  • Business tenancy renewals
  • Break clauses
  • Rent and service charge disputes
  • Dilapidations claims and disputes over repairing covenants
  • Possession and forfeiture claims
  • Tenant insolvency
  • Rent reviews
  • Assignments and underleases
  • Alterations
  • Adverse possession
  • Easements such as rights to light and rights of way
  • Restrictive covenants
  • Solicitor/surveyor professional negligence
  • Conditional contracts and options
  • Development and funding agreements
  • Sale and purchase disputes
  • Overage clauses
  • HS2 compensation claims

An alternative to legal action
We deal regularly with cases in the High Court and county courts, as well as matters before the adjudicator for the Land Registry, Leasehold Valuation Tribunal (First Tier Tribunal Property Chamber) and the Upper Tribunal. However, legal action is not always the best course when settling disputes, and we encourage clients to consider alternatives such as mediation or arbitration. Our real-estate group includes trained mediators who are available to explain these options to you and to act in mediation proceedings.
