Landlords and Tenants
Our landlord and tenant solicitors have experience acting for both landlords and tenants, which means that we can see both sides of the coin. Whether that means advising you to litigate through the courts, or to try and settle, we will give you clear, practical advice and keep you updated every step of the way. Sometimes, the legal relationship isn’t as clear cut, and we can advise you on your rights too.
The law has strengthened over the years to protect the rights of tenants. On the other hand, there are unfortunately still some unscrupulous landlords out there.
Your landlord owes you a number of obligations. The most important ones allow you to enjoy possession of the property without being unduly disturbed, and to make sure it’s habitable. If you feel your landlord is harassing you or ignoring a problem (like a broken-down boiler), ask one of our specialists for help. We can take steps on your behalf to force the landlord to do what’s needed.
If you’re faced with an eviction notice or a notice for possession, call one of our specialists immediately for advice. We’ll explain your position to you and talk you through your options. If the landlord isn’t entitled to evict you, we can fight the notice to make sure you’re able stay in the property.
All of our landlord and tenant services are available for fixed fees – plus we’re always willing to assess your position and options upfront at no charge. If you’re going to be evicted or you’re looking for advice because of an unscrupulous landlord, please get in contact with our specialist solicitors.
