Acting for Landlords

We have considerable experience acting for private landlords covering all aspects of property law that regularly affect them.

On this page:

    How can we help?

    We are able to draft the initial Tenancy Agreement based on your specific requirements and instructions and are also able to advise more generally with regard to the respective obligations of the parties to a particular agreement.

    Where the relationship between you and your tenant breaks down, we are able to advise and assist with regard to all steps involved in possession proceedings including drafting and serving notices on your tenant, issuing possession proceedings, representation at court and enforcement of the final order to enable you to regain possession of your property.

    Whilst clearly less common, we are also experienced in dealing with situations involving properties being squatted and dealing with the court proceedings necessary for regaining possession.

    All private landlords should be aware of the requirements relating to registering deposits taken from tenants and we are able to advise you with regard to your obligations under the Tenancy Deposit Scheme and assist you in dealing with any claims stemming from this brought by your tenant.

    We are also able to advise you regarding any disrepair issues that may arise and, in particular, in defending any claims brought by your tenant that relate to this.

     

    Fixed Fees (for landlords) in relation to possession proceedings

    Some landlords are happy to bring their own claims for possession and deal with the procedures themselves. However, this can be both stressful and time consuming and mistakes are easily made. Once such mistakes have been made they can often be both difficult and expensive to rectify.

    We offer fixed fees covering the various stages involved in evicting your tenants including consideration of the documentation, issuing proceedings where necessary and advising in writing.

    Firmwide

    Highly recommended. Took all of the strain and stress during conveyancing and explained everything clearly and concisely.

    Family & Divorce

    Over the period I found you to be professional, assured, confident and well-prepared dealing with the technical and complex. Sometimes issues were almost forensic. This was complimented by your ability to understand the personal anxiety that a client experiences as the process takes different directions and help with an empathetic approach which was much valued.

    Family & Divorce

    Your great patience was much appreciated, your lovely approach to people made me feel like a friend rather than a client- that makes the trauma of divorce easier to get through. Thank you again for everything.

    I will never forget the feeling when I heard the outcome of the court ordering my children to be returned home. I cannot thank you enough for your assistance. Your legal expertise, professionalism and attention to detail went above and beyond my expectations throughout the course of my case. It was a pleasure doing business with you.

    I just wanted to thank you for all the time, effort and meticulous attention to detail regarding my case over the past year or so.  You are always prepared to go the extra mile, working long hours and your ability to recall the smallest and often most significant details amongst a wealth of facts in my highly complex case never ceases to amaze me.  I appreciate all you have done and the manner in which you conducted my case and liaised with me throughout. It was very reassuring to have you on my side.  I do not know what I would have done without you.
