Making commercial property repairs a priority
‘Poorly maintained premises can be bad for your business, not to mention your landlord’s property investment’
It can be frustrating, to say the least, when your landlord doesn’t respond to requests for commercial property repairs on your premises. It can also have significant knock-on effects on your trade if your business is customer facing, not to mention your staff morale.
A sensible approach to enforcing landlord repair obligations.
If you landlord doesn’t meet their obligation to make repairs it can affect your ability to honour your own repairing, maintenance and decorating clauses. It can also cause long term damage to the property, which means you need to find a solution to the problem fast.
You should seek legal advice as soon as a problem with landlord repair obligations becomes apparent. Your business premises are an important asset to your landlord so it’s in their interest to repair and maintain them. With this in mind, conflict about commercial property repairs can often be avoided if you take the right steps at the right time.
