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.

  • Anti-Social Behaviour Possession Proceedings
  • Defending Evictions
  • Disrepair Claims
