About the event

An overview of the types of disputes that often arise between GP tenants and landlords will also be provided, with tips on how to resolve them. It is, of course, vital that GPs have premises to operate from. However, the administration and legality of it can often be overlooked – as complex leases can test both time and focus.

The intention of this training is to provide an overview of the key provisions and differences between ‘normal’ leases and GP leases, and how to deal with disputes that may arise.

  • Rent review clauses
  • Service charges

  • how to approach disputes with landlords, in particular service charge disputes.
