Our legal services for landlords
Our landlord and tenant solicitors offer advice and guidance to a wide range of landlords for both residential and commercial property, helping our clients to ensure they can achieve the maximum return from their investment with the fewest possible problems.
Buying & selling rental property
Making sure you buy the right property for the right price while identifying any potential problems is crucial to a good investment as a landlord, as is the ability to sell that property effectively when the time is right. Our conveyancing solicitors can help you with every aspect of buying and selling rental property, both residential and commercial, allowing you to get the most from your investment while staying legally and financially secure.
Tenancy agreements & leases
Tenancy agreements and leases are essential for establishing a good landlord-tenant relationship and resolving any disputes that arise. This is key to protecting your investment and making your life as easy as possible. Our landlord and tenant solicitors can draft, review and negotiate these key agreements for you, making sure your interests are protected and minimising the risk of any issues with your tenants that could cost you time and money.
If your tenants are in arrears with their rent, we can help you recover the outstanding payments as quickly and cost-effectively as possible. By taking a friendly but firm approach, we are often able to recover unpaid rent without unnecessary conflict. However, where necessary we can take legal action, including applying for court orders, to ensure you are able to collect the money you are owed.
If you need to regain possession of your property, there are strict legal processes you must follow to ensure you do not leave yourself open to legal action from your tenants. We can guide you through the entire eviction process, making it as fast, straightforward and cost-effective as possible to regain possession of your property.
Landlord-tenant dispute resolution
Unfortunately, conflict between you and your tenants cannot always be avoided. Whether over unpaid rent, damage to your property, disputes with neighbours or any other issues, these problems can cost you time, money and a lot of stress if not handled effectively.
Our dispute resolution team can help find fast solutions to your landlord-tenant disputes, helping to minimise conflict wherever possible. Our goal is to achieve a fair outcome for you while ensuring you stay within the law at all times, helping to avoid any risk of the situation escalating.
