Rent in arrears or tenants not looking after your property?

Is your commercial landlord being unreasonable?

Commercial landlord and tenant disputes can take many forms. At Myers and Co our dispute resolution and commercial property solicitors have extensive experience in handling all kinds of tenancy disputes and issues.

When problems arise between landlords and tenants, the first point of reference is your tenancy agreement or lease. If there is no contract or the contract terms are unfair then statutory provisions may apply instead.

Whether you are a landlord or business tenant, our highly-skilled solicitors will provide you with timely advice on the most cost-effective way to resolve the dispute.


If you lease commercial property you own, we can help with:

  • breach of covenant;
  • dilapidations
  • evictions;
  • forfeiture of leases;
  • lease renewals under the Landlord and Tenant Act 1954;
  • termination of leases and notices to quit;
  • rent arrears and recovery;
  • rent reviews; and
  • service charge disputes.


If you own land in Staffordshire or Cheshire, we can provide comprehensive advice on:

  • farm business tenancies;
  • farm cottages and planning consent;
  • granting or renewing agricultural holdings;
  • watercourses; and
  • quotas.
