As a residential landlord, you must comply with a number of national and local standards and regulations. If the local authority thinks you are in breach of any of these, you can face enforcement action and will need expert legal advice. When it comes to regulatory issues our solicitors are highly experienced in helping landlords who are in dispute with the local authority or with tenants over maintenance and repairs. We are specialists in rent repayment orders, and we can represent landlords in these cases.
No landlord wants to have to evict a tenant. However, sometimes this is unavoidable if your tenant hasn’t paid the rent, is damaging your property or is engaged in anti-social behaviour. The eviction process is highly regulated and it is important you get all the details in the paperwork right. Failure to do so could prevent the court granting
re-possession order and lead to unnecessary costs and delays which is where we can help.
Letting agents and property managers have to deal with increasing amounts of regulation and the consequences for making mistakes can be severe. We can advise you on changes in the law, assist you if you are in a dispute with a landlord, tenants or the local authority. We can help you to keep your legal documents such as tenancy agreements and terms of business up to date and prepare bespoke contracts and agreements which meet the needs of your business.
