Commercial Property Leases

Whilst commercial property leases can be of benefit to both landlords and tenants, negotiating the terms of a lease to ensure it is balanced and satisfies the needs of both parties can be a tricky area to navigate without the right support.

At Rotheras we have a wealth of experience assisting both landlords and tenants with commercial property leases and are experienced in working with both sides to avoid disputes and concerns regarding the terms of the lease.

Whether you are a landlord looking to ensure that your commercial property is kept in good condition or a tenant concerned about various restrictions in the lease affecting how you run your business, our commercial property team will work with you, listening to your wishes and helping to not only get the right terms in place for you but ensuring a harmonious agreement for all.

This was my first experience using a solicitor, something I felt quite daunted about. Rothera Sharp (Greg and Petra) put me at ease and were very helpful.

Last year I experienced a car accident, as a front seat passenger. I put forward a personal injury claim with Rothera Sharp. From start to finish, my claim has been dealt with efficiently and professionally, and I have always felt my best interests were considered. All communications were made via letter or email to inform me of all further updates. My claim has now come to an end and I am very happy with the overall outcome. I would recommend Rothera Sharp for their service.

We cannot recommend Chris Powell of Rothera Sharp more highly. Mr Powell demonstrated the upmost professionalism with a high level of knowledge of the area for which he was representing us. Anyone needing representation/advice regarding the area of haulage will find that Chris Powell and Rothera Sharp are the best choice.

Easements: when could an interference arise with my ability to exercise a right of way?

The recent case of Vance & Vance v Collerton & Collerton has illustrated that if it is not unreasonable to insist on the continued luxury of a widely granted right of way, an actionable interference will occur even if the person benefiting from the right is left with reasonable access.

Myth-busting – What are your Legal Rights in a Long-Term Relationship?

Between 1970 and 2015, marriage was in sharp decline. This cultural shift, as more people choose to live together, means there is confusion over the rights of individuals in long-term relationships. With the number of divorce and cohabiting cases on par here at Rotheras, this post answers questions you may have, what you can do and how to navigate a highly emotional period in your life.
