Drafting and Advising of Documents
Landlord and Tenant Law
As a landlord you may encounter problems with a tenant who has fallen behind with rental payments or a tenant who is refusing to move out of a property.
Our expert team can help with support and guidance regarding these contentious situations.
We can advise the best way to go about achieving a possession order, in the knowledge that the courts require all regulations to be met by you before and during the tenancy term.
Prior to beginning legal action, we will advise of potential pitfalls and problem areas of your case, ensuring you save time overall.
Our litigation team will advise on and draw up relevant notices to the tenant requesting possession as well as preparing the case and representing you in court.
In the event that a possession order does not achieve its purpose, we will liaise with the County Court or High Court Bailiff to help enforce eviction. We can also support you in recovering rent arrears and other costs.
We can also help tenants defend any proceedings issued against them by the landlord for possession and/or rent arrears. In the event the tenant has a complaint and/or a claim to bring against their landlord, we can advise the tenant of their rights and how to bring a claim as well as seeking a remedy against their landlord.
