Landlord &
Tenant Solicitors

We have an experienced team of Landlord and Tenant solicitors who provide clear and straightforward legal advice to the social, council and private tenants. Landlords and Tenants rely on having a good relationship with each other; for landlords, it’s so they can see a good return on their investments, whereas, for tenants, it’s feeling comfortable in the property with little hassle. 

At Ashwood Solicitors, our landlord and tenant legal team have years of experience providing a full range of services for tenants, including tenancy disputes, unlawful evictions, disrepair and lease renewals. We have a dedicated team that can help with all types of property disputes and help to rebuild a positive relationship between tenants and landlords. 

We understand that tenancy issues can cause stress and frustration, but there is no need to worry. At Ashwood Solicitors, we are here to ensure your rights are well protected and your landlord adheres to their legal obligations. If an issue arises between landlords or tenants, which then becomes an unsolvable dispute, this is where legal advice can stop a conflict from escalating. 

Tenants – Legal Advice

Our solicitors are experienced in a wide range of landlord and tenant disputes and have represented a range of clients over the years. Some of the more common issues that tenants encounter include:

  • Allegations of breach of tenancy terms
  • Allegations of disturbance caused to others
  • Anti-social Behaviour
  • Disputes over the return of the deposit
  • Disputes with Local Authority or Housing Associations
  • The disrepair of the property
  • Harassment
  • Tenancy agreement termination
  • Unlawful evictions or obstruction to use of the property
  • Possession proceedings

If you have an issue with your landlord, It is essential to speak to our team as soon as possible to protect your legal rights.Assured tenants have several automatic rights, including the following:

  • Not to be mistreated through some form of discrimination or harassment.
  • The right of your spouse or civil partner to take over your tenancy should you pass away, provided that the property has not been passed on before.
  • To have the accommodation kept in a reasonable state of repair
  • To stay in your accommodation unless your landlord has strong reasons to evict you, e.g. rent arrears, damage to the property, or another breach of your tenancy agreement.

Dispute Resolution

Wherever possible, we always advise our clients to resolve disputes with landlords outside of courts to minimise issues escalating and keep costs down.

Our team at Ashwood Solicitors can advise you on whether we think court action is appropriate if that approach fails.

Legal Aid

Legal aid for landlord and tenant issues is available in limited circumstances. It may also depend on your financial circumstances. Our team can help establish if you qualify for legal aid, but we may require you to provide further information or documents to assess your eligibility.
