Tenancy Law

According to the legal definition, tenancies are ‘continuous obligations’. They bind the parties together personally over a long period of time. It is these factors of time and individuality that shape tenancy law.

‘Pre-conflict management’: if we were to reduce legal activity in the area of tenancy law to a single handy formula, this would be it. If a tenancy is to be successful and therefore trouble-free, the pursuit of legal interests can only set itself the aim of balancing the not necessarily opposing legal positions of both landlord and tenant. Because the two remain – for a specific length of time, at least – bound up with one another.

 LSL LAWYERS build on this obvious – though in routine legal proceedings often still neglected – empirical truth. Identifying possible areas of conflict and the necessary balancing of interests must, from the outset of a long-term contractual relationship, form the core of any legal advice in tenancy law. This includes, in equal measure, willingness and determination to deal firmly with any breaches of contract by any one of the parties using the legal means provided by the law. A prerequisite here is full respect for the relevant current jurisdiction in tenancy law. Securing mutual observance of the contractual element in tenancy law is vital, especially because of the temporal and personal nature of the ongoing obligations under tenancy law.
