Being a landlord is not only a position that comes with great prestige but also a position that comes with great responsibility, the laws relating to housing law in England and Wales are not only lengthy but also complex and it can become expensive for a landlord if they have a tenant who is not complying with the terms of their tenancy agreement or not paying their rent. Successful landlords see the problems early and seek out legal advice at the first point of their problem with a tenancy. This in turn saves time expense and headaches when dealing with troublesome tenants.
Possession proceedings– If you have tenants who have not paid their rent or are behaving in an anti-social way which is causing damage to the property or a disturbance in the neighbourhood, I can assist you in legally removing them from the property and recovering the rent due.
Illegal Eviction– If you have been accused of unlawfully evicting a tenant or mortgagee, I will be able to assist in defending you.
Disrepair– I can assist in defending disrepair claims.
Being a tenant in a property can sometimes leave you feeling vulnerable and not secure, but there are many legal rights available to tenants, seeking out professional advice at an early stage can help when problems occur with your landlord.
Eviction/ Possession Proceedings– If you are facing eviction or have been evicted from your home, there may be remedies available to you that you are unaware of. I can assist you in defending proceedings.
Disrepair if you are living in a property that is not being properly maintained by the landlord, I may be able to assist you. Landlords have a statutory duty to meet their responsibilities in relation to the standard of the properties which they let to tenants. I regularly help tenants bring cases against negligent property owners, including local councils.
Neighbour Disputes If your neighbours or your landlord are causing problems with noise, litter, antisocial behaviour or harassment, I may be able to assist in getting you a remedy to stop the problems.
I would be delighted to help you with your legal matters.
