Advice for Landlords

Peace of mind with a landlord and tenant solicitor

We provide legal advice for landlords on all types of tenure (tenant / leaseholder / lodger / licensor). Landlords must follow strict laws, particularly regarding the eviction of tenants and repossession of property, otherwise their actions could be deemed illegal, so it is always a good idea to take advice from a specialist landlord and tenant solicitor.

  • Are you a private landlord, or thinking about becoming one? We will make sure you have all the required documents in place and are following the necessary legal procedures.
  • Are you a landlord seeking repossession of your property? We can ensure the correct legal process is followed to secure the eviction of a tenant who has failed to adhere to their tenancy agreement. We can advise and prepare the required notices.

How we work

A named tenancy lawyer will support your case from start to finish and keep you informed throughout the process. We will start by meeting with you and discussing your circumstances. We will help you to understand your rights and responsibilities as a landlord and, in the case of disputes, we can also talk about options for dispute resolution. If your case manager is unavailable on the day, another member of the team will make every effort to speak to you.

Before we start working for you, we will agree with you:

  • exactly what needs to be done
  • who will be doing the work
  • how much it will cost or how the fee will be calculated
