Litigation in German Commercial Tenancy Law
Even with the most secure commercial leases, legal disputes can still happen. Consulting with expert legal assistance from the beginning will ensure that you will not make missteps. If your company is a commercial tenant, decisions made by landlords can have a significant impact on how you run your business and your profits. Should your company suspect that the landlord is not fulfilling their contractual obligations, consult with our team before taking any actions. Our lawyers will advise you in cases regarding the potential of premature lease termination, unilateral changes of lease terms, attempts to limit access to the leased areas, disputes over repairs responsibility and failure to provide services specified in the lease.
Similarly, professional legal advice is crucial if you are a commercial landlord. Breaches of contract by a commercial tenant can provide grounds to extraordinarily terminate the lease; however, it is advisable to consult with a legal professional before finalising such a move. Our lawyers will advise you in cases relating to
- the failure to make rental payments,
- the tenant has damaged the property,
- misuse of the property,
- modifications to the property not provided for under the commercial lease.
Our legal team will advise you as to how to pursue the matter. If negotiations can resolve the case, our team will lead the discussion, but we are also ready to represent you in court should it be the preferred solution.
