Landlord and Tenant
Our lawyers advise on individual lease extensions, service charge disputes, landlord and tenant disputes, management problems, tenancy agreements and all other legal issues relating to residential leases.
We advise landlords and tenants on residential tenancies and on the many rights available for owners of leasehold properties. Tenants are advised on collective enfranchisements which is a process, where the owners of flats can buy their freeholds together with other flat-owners, or where they wish to extend their leases. Landlords are provided with clear and well-drafted tenancy agreements and tenants on the terms of any agreement they are asked to sign.
We have advised both landlords and tenants when things go wrong and a dispute arises because either party have not carried out their respective responsibilities.
As a tenant, having moved into your property and discovering there are various problems with repairs can be stressful. You may be experiencing issues with neighbours. Your landlord may wish to repossess the property and has served an eviction notice. We can help you with these issues.
As a landlord, managing and letting property can be complicated; you may wish to give notice to a tenant and obtain possession if they are failing to pay rent or breaking other terms of their tenancy. Your property may require repairs and you may be concerned as to how these will be carried out with a tenant in occupation. Your tenant may be complaining about defects at the property and you need to ascertain who is responsible for remedying those defects.
