At Crombie Wilkinson, we understand that there is a lot to consider and have in place when it comes to renting a property. As a landlord, you have a responsibility to ensure the property meets all the relevant regulations and you and your tenants have the right paperwork in place.

Our Landlord and Tenant Dispute Services
Legal advice on Tenancy Agreements
When letting your home, you will want your property to be rented to trustworthy tenants and looked after properly, but you also need to ensure that legalities are in place. Our landlord solicitors provide straightforward legal advice on tenancy agreements.
Tenancy Deposit Schemes
The Tenancy Deposit Scheme, introduced in 2011, offers protection for tenants, landlords, and letting agents in England against the risk of losing money. Our tenancy deposit claims solicitors can advise on the legal implications of these schemes and other tenancy laws and Acts, such as the Section 22 Landlord and Tenant Act of 1985.
When a tenant falls behind with the rent or breaches the terms of the tenancy, it is important that landlords use a solicitor who has expertise in residential landlord and tenant dispute resolution. We offer a landlord service that will help landlords to recover unpaid rent and evict tenants who breach their tenancy agreement by serving the right notice.
By law, a landlord can serve:
- 2 months’ notice under section 21 of the Housing Act 1988
- Section 8 notices for rent arrears or other breaches of residential tenancies, e.g. rent arrears or nuisance
- Notices to end Licences to Occupy
- Section 25 notices to end commercial tenancies
- Section 146 notices where tenants have breached the terms of commercial tenancies
- Forfeiture of commercial premises
