We act for both landlords and tenants in all areas of residential landlord and tenant law; from drafting and negotiating tenancy agreements and rent deposit deeds to potential disputes, which may arise during or after a tenancy. We are practiced at settling such disputes; however, should settlement be unattainable, we represent clients in both court and tribunal proceedings.
Whether you are a landlord or a tenant, renting a property can be a delightful, but at times, daunting prospect. Disagreements can flair quickly and escalate rapidly out of control; exhausting both time and resources.
Particular obligations and requirements fall on residential landlords making it essential, when entering into a tenancy arrangement, that the i’s are dotted and the t’s crossed. Notices must be served on time, completed fully and using the correct forms; deposits placed with authorised deposit holding organisations, mortgage conditions met, tax implications considered and rights of access complied with.
It is vital both landlords and tenants obtain independent legal advice before entering into any kind of tenancy arrangement.
From the beginning, we help our clients to achieve successful and clearly delineated relationships, transparently setting out their expectations and objectives, as landlord or tenant, and recording the same; thus potentially reducing the risk of future disputes between the parties.
