Landlord and Tenant

We receive instructions from both Landlords and Tenants to advise on the law and issues that arise during the letting of both commercial and residential property.

We advise Landlords and Tenants on their rights and obligations under long leases and short term tenancies including assured shorthold tenancies of residential property.We can assist with the resolution of disputes over such matters as the payment of rent or service charges, consents to alterations and improvements and repairing covenants.

For properties let under Assured Shorthold Tenancies we can assist with the preparation and service of formal notices to start the possession process (whether a section 21 or section 8 notice is required) and can bring proceedings for the recovery of possession of property in the county court and instruct court bailiffs where required to secure the return of property. We can also advise and represent tenants seeking to defend possession proceedings.

We advise both landlords and tenants in connection with tenancy deposits including the remedial steps and sanctions where there has been a failure by the landlord to comply with the tenancy deposit requirements following ammendments to Chapter 4 of the Housing Act 2004 by the Localism Act 2011 and subsequently the Deregulation Act 2015.

We are also instructed to bring or defend court proceedings in respect of arrears of rent and or service charges.

We do not charge for an initial consultation and can usually respond to all telephone or e-mail enquiries within 24 hours.
