    Landlord & Tenant
    Clifford Dann have been advising owners and occupiers -landlords and tenants - of rented property for many years and have an established expertise in this field. We offer clear advice based on our experience of values in this Sussex area and our knowledge of the complexity of the Landlord and Tenant Legislation.

    Lease Renewal
    Lease renewal provides the opportunity to review the impracticality of older leases and introduce commercial reality. The Landlord & Tenant Acts provide a strict timetable to be followed by both sides and with proper professional advice a significant technical advantage can be gained. In this respect we recommend to both landlords and tenants that they take advice before the lease expires.

    Rent Review
    Rent Reviews are an area for potential conflict; all landlords want rents to increase where as tenants want them not to. We act for either party in such disputes to ensure that no tenant pays too much whilst no landlord receives too little.

    Valuation is at the heart of our business - whether you are buying or selling, if you are a landlord or a tenant or you are lending or borrowing. At the end of the day, the level of rent or price paid is the crucial figure. Our partners and managers have a wide knowledge of residential and commercial values across the County. This has been built up over many years and comes from not only an active involvement in the residential and commercial agency markets within the County, but also from professional advice given to owners, lenders and tenants alike. Our Partners and Managers have acted as Expert Witnesses in litigation matters where our valuation expertise is put fully to the test.

    The department undertakes a wide range of planning work including applications and appeals, forward planning work on local plans and development appraisals.

    We deal with proposals relating to most types of properties and development, both large and small, including:

    - new build for residential and business premises

    - changes of use of buildings and land

    - conversion schemes for the re-use of buildings

    - householder development

    - listed building consents

    - certificates of lawful use and development

    Proposals relating to listed properties and to properties in conservation areas require special consideration, for which we have the expertise.

    The planning system continues to undergo major changes. The importance of receiving good advice is ever present.
