Our Licence Expertise

Licences arise where permission is given to occupy land. Unlike a tenancy or lease, a license does not create a legal interest in the land and is personal to the parties.

Members of Tanfield offer specialist advice and advocacy on all matters relating to Licenses in Property Law. Issues often arise as to whether an agreement has given rise to a lease/tenancy or merely a licence to occupy land and how to determine any licence which has been created.

With a recognised expertise in both Real Property and Landlord & Tenant, barristers at Tanfield act in and advise on some of the most important disputes surrounding Licences.

Our Licence Clients

Tanfield has an enviable reputation for Landlord & Tenant and Property Law work. Tanfield’s clients include leading specialist law firms, large and small landowners, residential and commercial landlords and tenants, property developers and commercial organisations.
