Landlord and tenant disputes are sadly very common. These disputes are wide-ranging and can involve rent arrears, liability for repairs, harassment, or a bad housing claim, for example. We can advise you whether you are a landlord or tenant. Early help from a qualified and experienced MLS Solicitor can provide an effective and fast resolution.

For Landlords, we understand that protecting your investment and ensuring a continuing flow of income is your main priority. We can advise on a variety of issues including, but not limited to: drafting new tenancy agreements; observing statutory regulations; rent reviews; eviction and issuing possession proceedings.

For tenants, we understand that you want to live in a safe property, and receive all the services you are entitled to, free from any disturbance. Our solicitors can advise on many issues: housing disrepair, including compensation claims for disrepair and emergency injunctions; tenancy deposit protection scheme disputes; the proper notice period your landlord must serve to gain lawful possession.
