A large part of our practise is concerned with resolving disputes between Landlord and Tenants of commercial property. A landlord can choose to sue a tenant for a judgement debt in respect of unpaid rent or he can seek repossession of the property or both. The problem is particularly acute where tenants are trapped in leases which don’t allow downwards rent review. Landlords may similarly be trapped in loans which prevent them from lowering the rent. Landlords should not try to take possession forcibly as this will inevitably result in the Tenant taking an injunction and the Courts will not permit ‘taking the law into your own hands’. It is possible to obtain an order for possession relatively quickly in the Circuit Court following the issue of an ejectment civil bill. It helps to have a Lease which provides for Forfeiture as a remedy. From a Tenants perspective, it is possible to seek relief from ejectment and the Courts will look favourably on a Tenant who is prepared to pay its rent and wishes to stay in a property. It is possible for a Tenant to secure a long lease after it has built up a business equity in the property (five years with no renunciation).

Other FAQs

What does Annual Percentage Rate (APR) mean?

Annual percentage rate refers to the annual rate of interest charged to borrowers and paid to investors. APR is a % that represents the actual yearly cost of funds over the term of a loan. This includes any fees or additional costs associated with the transaction, but it does not take compounding into account. The APR provides consumers with a bottom-line number they can easily compare with rates from other lenders to help them in their decision making process.

What is a Top-up Mortgage?

A top-up mortgage is a home loan that allows homeowners to borrow more money by accessing the equity they've built in their home.

If you already have a mortgage you may be able to increase or top-up your mortgage to extend or improve your home, cover educational expenses or give a parental gift. Some mortgage lenders may allow you to use a mortgage top up to consolidate short-term debt. Whether you can top-up your mortgage will depend on your lender’s terms and conditions.

What other costs can I expect when purchasing a home?

There are multiple costs associated with buying a home. These include lending agency fees, legal fees, buyer’s survey fee, mortgage protection insurance, home insurance and stamp duty.

What is an application fee?

A loan application fee is an up-front, usually nonrefundable charge for submitting a loan application such as for a mortgage.
