A landlord sued a number of its tenants for the recovery of rent and other payments under their leases claiming hundreds of thousands of dollars in back rent.
The defaulting tenants retained us for representation.
The tenants admitted they were in default of rent but maintained that their losses were attributable to a non performing shopping centre. The tenants complained that the building had fallen into disrepair and had become an unattractive destination.
We sourced evidence in support and vigorously prosecuted significant counterclaims against the landlord. In the result the landlord abandoned its claims.
We have successfully acted for many tenants in similar situations against larger landlord opponents in resolving disputes and prosecuting claims.
Whether you are a tenant or a landlord in need of representation please do not hesitate to give us a call.
