Landlord and Tenant Disputes

When owning a property and renting it out there are many legal factors to consider. Likewise, for tenants, it’s important to know your legal rights when you choose to rent a property in the UK.

As a law firm, our landlord and tenant expertise is available at all three of our Yorkshire branches; York, Malton and Selby.

Some disputes are relatively simple to resolve whereas others require more specialist input by our team. We have successfully represented both landlords and tenants in Court.

Areas we specialise in are:

  • Agricultural disputes
  • Commercial disputes
  • Residential disputes

Our landlord services in particular are extensive and we can assist with the following:

Preparing Leases

We can prepare leasing documents for both residential property and commercial property needs.

Tenancy Deposit Schemes

This government backed scheme was introduced in 2011 and offers protection for tenants, landlord and letting agents. We can advise on the legal implications associated with this.

Serving Notices

We can issue accelerated possession proceedings after a tenancy has come to an end, as well as issue Section 8 proceedings if a tenant defaults on their obligations. This could be due to rent arrears (which we can also help you recover, see below).

Debt Recovery

Our debt recovery proceedings offer the support and advice needed to landlords when recovering tenancy debts.  Our pragmatic advice will help resolve the situation and should Court be the only option, we will be with you every step of the way.

If you are a landlord seeking legal advice over a dispute, or a tenant looking for a quick resolution to an escalating issue, contact our Dispute Resolution team.
