Landlord or a Tenant, please do not hesitate to contact us. We can draft both commercial and residential leases on your behalf and negotiate the best terms possible for you.
We regularly advise clients concerning:

In relation to Private Residential Tenancies, disputes can be taken up with the Private Residential Tenancies Board (PRTB). The PRTB can assist tenants, landlords, sub-tenants, licensees and
third parties affected by the tenancy such as neighbours.
The following are some examples of disputes that the PRTB will deal with:
Refund or retention of deposits.
Breaches of tenancy obligations (by either landlords or tenants).
The charging of rents above market rent.
Timing of rent reviews.
Failure to follow the correct procedure to terminate a tenancy.
Invalid reason for terminating a tenancy.
Tenants and sub-tenants remaining in occupation despite receiving a valid termination notice.
Claims for costs and damages from either the landlord or the tenant arising from failures by either party to comply with their obligations.
Claims for costs or damages or both by a landlord or tenant claiming improper termination of a tenancy.
Failure to comply with a determination order made by the PRTB.
Penalisation of tenants by landlords, e.g. for referring a dispute to the PRTB.
Claims for rent arrears or other charges.
If you are a landlord or tenant and your property dispute is not one that can be dealt with by the PRTB, you can instruct Gerard Ccohrane & Co. Solicitors to act on your behalf.
