Breach of Lease

A covenant is a legal promise that you will do or will not do certain things.

There are two types of covenant in relation to property leases:

  • Positive Covenant: These include things like, paying service charges, painting every 7 years, keeping the property in good repair etc
  • Negative Covenant: These include things like, not to sublet, not cause to cause nuisance, not to have a pet etc

All leases contain covenants and obligations for both landlord and tenant. It is extremely important that both parties understand what restrictions apply when buying a leasehold flat.

Whether you are the landlord or leaseholder we can discuss the remedies available to you for breach of lease.
