What is a Commercial Landlord responsible for?
As a commercial landlord, you will have certain obligations and responsibilities when it comes to letting out property in Scotland. You may be unsure what repairs (if any) you are legally required to handle . Our lawyers are well-equipped with the knowledge you need to ensure you adhere to your duties as a commercial landlord.
We also appreciate that you will want your property to be looked after and for your tenant to be respectful to the lease terms but, unfortunately, this is not always the case. Should there be a problem with your tenant, we are happy to advise on the service of Schedules of Dilapidation. This can help remind the tenant of their duty to leave the property in the same condition as it was when they moved in. No matter what the dispute may be, andersonbain’s commercial property lawyers strive to handle the situation as efficiently as possible.
What can we do for Commercial Tenants?
