Landlord advice

Buying and renting out properties can be a good way to invest our hard earned money and make additional income. However, when a tenant discovers a problem with the property, it is the responsibility of the landlord to put things right. This is when disputes can sometimes begin.

Our Dispute Resolution Department and Debt Recovery Department have a wealth of experience working with local landlords to assist in the recovery of outstanding rent arrears and disputes that can occur with the tenant. 

We provide a high-quality personal service our clients.  We work hard to get to know our clients’ and their businesses. We learn to understand their needs and ensure we always work with them to resolve any disputes or legal issues they may have in a timely and cost effective manner. 

To help, we have introduced an initial fixed fee consultation which should make our legal services more accessible and will provide you with the following: 

  • Consultation with a qualified Solicitor who specialises in Landlord & Tenant matters
  • Letter of advice 
  • Letter Before Action*

*We include the first Letter Before Action if the consultation of the matter with a qualified Solicitor is a maximum of 30 minutes. If the consultation takes one hour, an additional fee of £25.00 will be charged for the Letter Before Action. 

As well as the advice provided you will also be given an estimate on the costs that may be involved. The advice and the estimate of costs will provide you with the necessary information for you to make an informed decision whether to pursue legal action.  

We act for a wide range of landlord clients. Our competitive rates will ensure that you receive an excellent service. We promise to provide you with practical advice on queries which may arise. 

This typically includes advice on the following:

  • Rent review provisions
  • Repairing obligations and dilapidations
  • Service charge provisions
  • Termination of leases
  • Tenant insolvency

We assist in dealing with a wide range of property management matters including:
