LEASE DISPUTE LAWYER [exclusive to Alberta]
Commercial leases are invariably subject to disputes and differences of opinion, and the question is how do you handle these matters to minimize the disruption and cost to your business and, where possible, salvage your current landlord-tenant / lessor-lessee relationship. Though the objective is to resolve the dispute through intelligent negotiation; yet when the parties become entrenched it their respective positions (often out of necessity), litigation can become the only path to dispute resolution, whether it is through the courts, mediation or alternative dispute resolution.
Although the most common cause of tensions between landlord and tenant arises from the tenant defaulting on its payment obligations, disputes arise from countless other violations of the lease agreement, including:
- delayed possession in receiving the leased premises
- failure to satisfy specifics promised in the lease agreement
- right to quiet enjoyment
- restrictive covenants and specific use
- responsibilities with respect to common areas
- maintenance, repairs and replacements
- validity of charges and additional rents
- fixtures and leasehold improvements
- subletting and assignment (including corporate tax planning)
- mortgagees, co-tenants and other third party rights
- guarantees, surety and indemnity
- bankruptcy restructuring and insolvency
- third party injuries and lawsuits
- insurance and costs related to structural damage
- environmental violations
- by-law and regulatory infringement
- obligations upon termination
