Landlord & Tenant Solicitors

At Ridgemont, we have a wealth of expertise and knowledge, built up over many years of acting for both commercial landlords and tenants. Tension between tenants and landlords is not uncommon, but in some cases, you will need the advice and support of a legal professional.

We offer advice to both professional landlords and commercial tenants in relation to a range of disputes.

Our team also advises landlords on agreements for lease (including pre-lets), leases, lease renewals, assignments, authorised guarantee agreements, licences, rent deposits and surrenders.

We mainly act for commercial landlords, property managers, investors, developers, and commercial tenants. However, we also regularly act on matters relating to Central London houses and apartments.
