About the Sector

One of our key specialisations is advising both commercial landlords and tenants. We understand the challenges our landlord and tenant clients face in an ever-changing market. The ban on Upwards Only Rent Reviews has created a two-tier lease system which can be confusing and strategically challenging for our clients. As lease values recover, we see increasing attention being paid to Deeds of Renunciation, Compensation Claims, so-called “Court Leases” and various other tools of the landlord and tenant trade.

As the property sector recovers, new owners need advice on how best to structure leases for returns. Similarly, incoming tenants (especially from outside Ireland) need to get familiar with lease structure, typical terms and potential opportunities. The legislative landscape is complex and challenging and we help our clients get through it so that they can focus on what they do best – their business.
