Modern contract documentation, including commercial leases often provide for disputes to be referred to arbitration if the parties cannot reach an agreement. The dispute may be with respect to the condition of the building or the amount of rent to be paid under the terms of a rent review. In England and Wales, the arbitration will be conducted under the provisions of the Arbitration Act 1996.
As an arbitration is a quasi judicial process, it is necessary to understand the basis of arbitration law and practice in a particular field to ensure the best result.
