Hello, I am a solicitor with over 15 years experience. I will try to help you with this.
Is there anything in the lease that deals with unreasonable conduct/breaches on the part of the tenant and how this will be dealt with.
They do not currently have a lease. Many years back they had a full lease. The lease lapsed and they refused to renew the lease. We only have 1 tenant that is now on full lease, the remaining 33 tenant are on "Tenancy at will" agreements. Every time the tenant in question takes additional space the owner will only agree the cost by email but will not sign any lease. Our tenancy at will does not allow the tenant to "commit any nuisance or annoyance to the landlord or to any owners or occupiers of the adjoining or neighbouring premises" and "not to do anything on the Premises wherby any policy of insurance maintained by the landlord in respect of the premises may be vitiated or payment of policy monies withheld either wholly or in part or wherby the premium of such policy may be increased and to comply forthwith with all requirements of such insurers" We do not have anything that specifically relates to the common areas
They have not signed any tenancy agreement. The tenant refuses to sign anything, but they are our biggest tenant.The rest of our tenants are on tenancy at will.
So by not signing an agreement this in effect means they have a tenancy at will?
I think we need to review our current tenancy at will agreement to incorporate care of the common areas.
Thank you very much for your help
