About lease renewal disputes
A lease renewal dispute may emerge when there is conflict between a landlord and a tenant regarding the expiry of a lease and the terms to be implemented for the new lease. Many disputes of this nature will be settled before they proceed to trial. However, lease renewal proceedings can and are issued, and are very often issued at court in an effort to protect the tenant’s position.
The Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 (the Act) governs these procedures and states that a qualifying tenant – a tenant who owns a long lease, has been the proprietor for more than two years and pays a nominal ground rent – is entitled to extend their lease.
Different types of dispute
There are various areas of dispute that can arise in connection to lease renewal proceedings, and some of the more common include:
- The level of annual rent
- The length of the term of the lease
- Repairing obligations
