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.
The first step to instructing a barrister on your behalf is to provide us with some background information to your case. Our clerks are massively experienced and can help point you in the right direction.
