As a landlord, getting the right legal advice to solve a tenancy issue should be quick, easy and cost-effective. At a glance
- As a landlord, at some point you may face a problem with a tenant, such as a failure to pay rent or to comply with the terms of their tenancy agreement.
- If you need to regain possession of the property or enforce a breach of the tenancy agreement, it is vital to follow the correct legal process.
Renting your property and benefiting from a regular income should be straightforward. However, should your tenants fail to pay rent or breach other terms of their tenancy agreement, you can encounter problems.
If this happens, you may need to regain possession of your property or take steps to enforce the terms of the tenancy agreement that relate to any breach.
Alternatively, the tenancy agreement may not have been breached and you may simply want to regain possession of your property; for example, if you want to move into that property.
Whatever the situation, you will need to follow the correct process. If you don’t, you may not be able to obtain possession of your property and you risk facing criminal or civil action. We can guide you through the correct process to lawfully obtain possession of your property.
A straightforward process
If your tenant will not voluntarily vacate, the correct way to regain possession of your property is to initiate possession proceedings against your tenant.
The prospect of taking legal action to obtain possession of your property may seem daunting, but we can help simplify the process and advise you on the correct course of action.
We can ensure that you have the right assistance and advice and can handle the entire process on your behalf.
