Landlord & Tenant Case Studies

Cavell House

We acted on behalf of the landlord in respect of a rent review of this 30,000 sq.ft office building with banking premises on the ground floor. The tenant argued for a nil increase and the case involved a legal disagreement over the correct interpretation of the user clause. This was settled in the landlord’s favour where Cyril Leonard successfully argued for the building to have an office use rather than a banking use. Nevertheless, the tenant’s representatives continued to argue for a nil increase and the matter was therefore referred to an arbitrator. The outcome was settled in Cyril Leonard’s favour with the award of a rental increase.
