Fallen out with your landlord or tenant?
Whether you’re a landlord or tenant, a dispute is never welcome. Landlords don’t want to lose their rental income and risk damage to their property, tenants generally just want somewhere comfortable to live in peace and quiet. But when disputes do happen, things can often turn nasty quickly.
Threatening letters from solicitors, notices to evict, withholding of rent and damage to the property are just a few of the things to be concerned about.
If you’re in a dispute with your landlord or tenant and you haven’t been able to resolve things amicably, it’s generally a good idea to get a lawyer involved to tell you where you stand.

The reason for this is that the terms of the tenancy agreement will usually determine the outcome of the dispute, including the landlord’s right to withhold the tenant’s deposit and require payment of rent. A specialist property lawyer will be able to advise you of your rights under the tenancy agreement or, if the tenancy agreement doesn’t cover it, general property law.
What our users say
Some landlords can be heavy-handed with their tenants in the expectation they won’t know their rights or speak to a property lawyer to find out what they are. Often, a simple letter from a specialist property solicitor can be enough to put a stop to any potential dispute.
After all, if you’re well advised the other side is much less likely to waste time and money on a course of action they know won’t work.
