How we can help with a landlord or property dispute

Residential Possessions

We offer a possession service to assist you in the recovery of your property from tenants. We can prepare and serve the required Notices and then issue proceedings on your behalf.

If you are seeking possession of your property for breach of the tenancy agreement including rent arrears then we can prepare the claim form and particulars of claim on your behalf, file them at court and then represent you at the court hearing. Alternatively, if you are only seeking possession and wish to make no other claim and your tenants have an assured shorthold tenancy (entitles you to a possession order immediately after the initial agreed period, and allows you to evict the tenant after the initial fixed term without a legal reason), you may be able to recover possession using the Court's accelerated possession procedure. This procedure allows a judge to order possession without the need for a court hearing and therefore can be a lot quicker.

Whether you require possession because the tenancy has expired, you have squatters, there are rent arrears or any other breach of the tenancy agreement we can help you recover possession of your property.

Commercial Possessions

We can assist you with disputes relating to commercial property. This includes breaches of leases, forfeiture, termination possession claims, dilapidation claims and applications for new business tenancies. We can also assist with the recovery of arrears.

Whatever your landlord or property dispute, whether you are a landlord or a tenant, get in touch with our property disputes team to find out how we can help.
