Landlord & Tenant Services

Landlord Services

The Landlord and Tenant Act outlines the position of the landlord and their rights in situations that may arise, as well as protecting the rights of the tenant in a situation that their position may be threatened. The relationships between a landlord and tenant are very important, revolving around someone’s home and therefore have to be kept fair and professional.
At Alison Law Solicitors, our housing solicitors and barristers understand the needs and priorities of the tenants as well as the property agents and landlords. For most landlords the top priorities are protecting the investment and rental income. We aim to prevent problems, but when they do arise; our focus is on minimising your cost. In most cases we can offer a fixed fee basis starting from as little as £120.00.

Our range of services for landlords starts from setting up a tenancy agreement to recovering possession of a property. Given our extensive experience, we also can assist landlord in defending claims arising from tenants.

Tenant Services

On the other hand, whilst the majority of landlords are familiar with their legal responsibilities many tend to overlook the obligations that they owe to their tenants, both during the course of the tenancy and at the end of the tenancy. Sometimes premises are not fit for habitation or need substantial repair. On other occasions landlords ask tenants to leave the premises at very short notice. We can stop illegal evictions.
