Landlord & Tenant Legal Advice

Tenants who rent from a private landlord have the right to peaceful enjoyment of their home and have some degree of protection from eviction from their home. The amount of protection they have varies enormously, depending upon the arrangements they made with the landlord and the date the tenancy began.

Issues can arise between a tenant and landlord in their occupation of the property, their rights and the rights of the landlord to receive prompt payment of rent.

If a landlord wants to end a tenancy strict procedures must be followed and court proceedings may be necessary if the tenant does not voluntarily vacate the property.

We can advise both landlords and tenants on the possession procedure from the start of a Notice Seeking Possession through to the claim for possession, possession hearing and eviction.
