Landlord Advice

If you're a property owner who's letting out residential accommodation in England and Wales, your top priority is to protect your investment and also your rental income. However, you have many responsibilities to your tenants, such as protecting their deposit and checking their right to rent in the UK (Immigration Act 2014). At the same time your tenants also have obligations to you under the tenancy agreement, such as paying the rent. Managing and letting a property can be complicated, particularly when problems arise, so if you have a question or a problem, contact us now for clear, sound advice.

Dealing with the Issues

How we can help

We can help you with all the issues shown above, plus we provide a streamlined system for landlords, designed to recover possession of your property as fast as possible, to minimise any loss you may sustain once a tenant breaches the terms of the tenancy. We can also assist with pursuing the tenant for damage to the property and arrears of rent.

Most claims brought by landlords for damages are below the small claims limit of £5,000. If they're not part of a possession claim, they will be allocated to the small claims track. Costs in the small claims track are extremely limited and you will not recover the cost of using a solicitor to pursue the claim. Where we are instructed to recover possession of the property we will also provide free advice on bringing the claim for rent arrears or damages against the tenant as part of the package. Call us to discuss your Landlord issues with no obligation.
