Oldfield Smith settle contentious Dartford rent review

19th May 2014

Acting for a locally based tenant, Oldfield Smith have just settled an entrenched and contentious rent review of commercial premises in Dartford.

At the point of our instructions, an Arbitrator had already been appointed and our client was faced with the daunting task of preparing for formal Arbitration proceedings, which can involve considerable cost and time.  Without professional representation, this can be very intimidating and failure to comply with the Arbitrator’s Directions can carry significant cost penalties.

Our experienced professional team lead by Bernard Smith, himself a qualified Arbitrator and Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators, quickly took control of the situation and worked efficiently to secure a rapid solution.  As a result of our work, a compromise was promptly found, a mutually acceptable solution agreed and the matter resolved amicably with the minimum of cost.
