Welcome to Darlingtons Solicitors specialist site for lease and leasehold property advice.

The site contains in-depth guides and articles on a range of legal and practical issues and problems with residential and commercial leases, based on years of experience our property law team have in this area.

Leases can be very complex  and can create huge legal problems and costs for the unwary, whether relating to problems associated with short residential tenancy agreements such as assured shorthold tenancies through to problems associated with long residential leases for converted houses or new build developments.

On the commercial side of things, clauses agreed when entering into a new lease can create long terms problems and high costs and that’s aside from legal issues arising on assignment, subletting or termination of lease, rent reviews and service charge disputes.

Darlingtons offer a specialist legal service from solicitors who deal with leases on a  daily basis. We are members (and were one of the first firms to be accepted onto the scheme) of the Conveyancing Quality Scheme, which provides real assurance of the level of our expertise but also the high quality of our service. this Law society scheme involves in-depth yearly vetting of all member firms, thereby ensuring the highest of standards.
