The most common problem faced by landlords is tenants not paying rent. Usually, this is not because they have suddenly decided to spend their money on something else but because their financial circumstances have changed, either temporarily or permanently. Often, the reason tenants stop paying rent is outside their control
It is vitally important that landlords try to deal with non-payment of rent at the earliest possible stage, try to reach agreements with their tenants as to how to resolve the problem and keep accurate records of any communications
If at all possible, landlords should seek to agree a re-payment plan with their tenants and use legal proceedings as a last resort
The success of legal proceedings under the Housing Act 1988 can very often turn on using the right notice and drafting it properly. We can give expert advice and provide expertly drafted up to date s.8 notices of seeking possession on grounds 8, 10 and 11 that form a proper basis for your claim
We can also draft and issue rent claims for possession that comply with all the Court rules and give you the best chance of getting back your property
Whether you are looking for a complete possession proceedings service or just advice on one or more aspect of the process, we can help you make the right decisions, using the right documentation at the right time.

Disrepair - advice for landlords
Disrepair claims are increasingly brought by tenants using "no-win, no fee" solicitors and can easily catch out unwary landlords. Early identification of repairs issues is vital even if they are not reported by your tenant. In many cases, knowledge of repair issues may be "imputed" to a landlord even without a report from a tenant.
The first thing many landlords will know of a potential claim will be a letter threatening legal action - a letter under the Pre-action Protocol for Housing Condition Claims. As specialist solicitors for landlords we can advise on the proper response to such letters including alternatives to claims in the County Court. Equally, some cases have no proper basis but the threat of legal action can lead landlords to make the wrong decision. Get the right advice at the earliest possible stage and manage the risk based on it.
We can help landlords with:
Stand-alone claims for disrepair
Counterclaims only raised when you issue a claim for rent arrears
Tenants who have legal aid
Negotiating settlements where necessary
Representation in Court and throughout the litigation process
