Commercial rent arrears
Question from Ruth updated on 13th May 2010:
Our expert Jeff Montgomery responded:
The Residential Tenancies Act only applies to tenancies for residential premises, and does not cover commercial leases. I recommend that you seek independent legal advice from a solicitor, or your local community law centre, about terminating a commercial lease agreement.
The Department of Building and Housing provides information and guidance on building law and compliance, services including weathertight homes, and advice for tenants and landlords.
