Rent Reviews


Commercial rent reviews are definitely an area where a tenant needs help.

Landlords will nearly always be seeking a revised rent well in excess of what can be justified. We will negotiate with the landlord or his agent and represent you as an expert witness in front of either the arbitrator or the independent expert appointed by the RICS to settle the dispute. Again, a tenant should never be reluctant to take this course and Peter Morgan, who is himself often appointed by the RICS to act as the arbitrator, is well qualified to represent you.


Case Study:

Morgans were instructed by a business occupying a shop in Hayes where the landlord was proposing a rent on review of £18,000 pa. The matter was referred to an Independent Expert appointed by the President of the RICS. Peter Morgan gave Expert evidence to this Independent Expert who determined the rent at £14,250 pa. Not only that but the whole of the Expert's costs were paid by the landlord due to the Calderbank offer which Peter advised his client to make.
