A law firm has said it is confident it can resolve a dispute about alleged unpaid rents, service charges and electricity contribution for its premises in Hamilton.

A civil writ has been filed at the Supreme Court on behalf of Park Properties Ltd, which is the landlord and owner of Cumberland House, on the corner of Park Road and Victoria Street.

The complaint alleges that Cox Hallett Wilkinson, a tenant of the property, has failed to pay rents, service charges and electricity contributions totalling $314,281.60 owed to Park Properties.

The writ was first reported by the Offshore Alert website.

In a statement, Ernest Morrison, managing director of CHW, told The Royal Gazette: “CHW are aware of the claim by Park Properties Ltd and are confident that it will be able to be resolved satisfactorily.”
