Residential Landlord & Tenant Services
At Clapham & Collinge we understand the importance of your property, whether you are a landlord and your property is your source of income and investment for the future, or you are a tenant and your property is security for you and your family.
Whatever the situation, our dedicated Litigation Team is on hand to assist you throughout the process, from drafting an Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement for your new tenants and advising you as to the current legal requirements as a landlord, to assisting you if you experience difficulties such as non-payment of rent by the tenant or dilapidations to the property.
Under current legislation, a tenant cannot be evicted without proper service of a valid notice and an Order from the Court. The process can be very costly for landlords if the steps are not undertaken correctly.
Seeking legal advice at the outset is therefore imperative not only to ensure landlords comply with current legislation when granting a tenancy, but before serving notice on tenants to vacate the property or issuing Court Proceedings for possession.
We know the process can be stressful for both parties, particularly if your tenant is not paying rent, or in the case of a tenant, the condition of the property is affecting your enjoyment of the property. Our Litigation Team has a wealth of experience and are on hand to support you through the process and alleviate the stress.
We provide expert advice to both landlords and tenants on all aspects of landlord and tenant law including:
- Drafting Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreements;
- Advising landlords and tenants as to their rights and obligations under a tenancy;
- Claims for dilapidations;
- Drafting notices to quit;
- Claims for possession;
- Failure to protect the tenant's deposit;
- Rent arrears recovery.
Clapham & Collinge are committed to providing clear, honest and up-front advice, setting out your options. We will be open and transparent with our fees enabling you to make an informed decision.
