Landlord & Tenant Advice

When matters relate to investment property and occupied premises, our members at Mercantile Barristers can provide practical legal advice to landlords and tenants on matters arising from their specific circumstances.

For landlords, our barristers are used to advising on: Tenants Deposit Scheme and complying with Statutory Regulations; breach of covenant; drafting Tenancy Agreements; determination of leases; eviction of tenants; sub-lettings; security of tenure; lease renewals; rent reviews; and serving notices and issuing Possession Proceedings including Court representation.

For tenants, our barristers are available to advise on: the correct notice and minimum notice period that your landlord is obliged to serve in order to gain lawful possession; representation at Court for unlawful eviction and proceedings to obtain compensation and reinstatement to a property; advice and representation for housing disrepair, including emergency injunction for urgent repairs and compensation claims for disrepair; advice and representation regarding disputes about Tenants Deposit; long leaseholder advice and representation on Service Charge, Management Disputes, Lease Extensions and Enfranchisement.

Value Adding Approach

Our approach to legal practice is always to articulate creative and value-adding solutions for clients whilst delivering timely, efficient and affordable professional services. All clients conduct their affairs within a legal context and Mercantile Barristers’ role is to advise on the conduct of their transactions and affairs in ways that avoid conflict and disputes.


However, should a dispute become inevitable, then our prior engagement would have assured that all the necessary precautions have been taken and mitigating steps adopted. Thus, clients will begin any dispute resolution in a strong position to achieve their desired objectives.


Whether by adjudication, arbitration, litigation, members at Mercantile Barristers will adopt a firm, swift and decisive approach to achieve the best possible results for clients within the shortest possible time. We recognise that no two cases are the same, so we will adapt our style to suit the occasion.
