As a residential landlord, you have to 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 prosecution and will need expert legal advice.
Our solicitors are highly experienced in helping landlords who are in dispute with the local authority over their multiple occupancy (HMO) licence or fire safety obligations. We may be able to settle out of court if you come to us as soon as you are threatened with prosecution.
Even if you think the local authority is wrong, waiting until you are served notice means you cannot challenge their decision without going to court, so it is vital you get legal help straightaway.
We also help landlords in dispute with their tenants over maintenance and repairs and can negotiate a deal on your behalf to avoid the case coming to court.
We will always agree a price for our services with you in advance, so you can be confident you know what to expect.
