Druces’ commercial property team specialises in all aspects of commercial property management, ranging from the grant and surrender of leases, the conduct of rent reviews, lease end issues and licences encountered in the management of any premises – for alterations, for assignment and for underletting. Our property litigation team provides expert advice and dispute resolution support in relation to contentious landlord and tenant issues and issues relating to neighbouring properties.
This area of practice can sometimes be undervalued. It does not produce the excitement of a high profile acquisition or disposal but proper professional management secures post-acquisition income and ensures the smooth running and ultimate success of any sale. We have a great deal of experience in dealing with property management in all areas and across all types of activity – retail, offices, industrial and warehousing. Our clients range in size from blue chip funds for whom this is mainstream work down to the commercial occupier trying to sub-let some space. Many of our clients in this area are substantial foreign investors and occupiers.
