Residential landlord + tenant disputes
At Barcan+Kirby we have a dedicated team of specialists who represent landlords and letting agents in tenancy disputes and can advise you on all aspects of landlord and tenant law.
Regardless of how many properties you own, you’re likely to need legal advice from a specialist landlord solicitor at some point. Speaking to us early can help avoid unnecessary costs and delays, and we can quickly take control if the situation becomes complex.
Protecting your investment
As a landlord you’re likely to have two major priorities – protecting your income and safeguarding your property. A difficult tenant can cause untold stress, which is why we offer support at every stage of the landlord and tenant relationship – from drafting tenancy agreements and managing rent arrears, through to evicting a tenant.
If you’re trying to regain possession of your property, we’ll guide you through the process and can help you by serving the correct notice to the tenant, obtaining a court order and enforcing the order, if necessary.
We can advise you on your options for dealing with a tenant in rent arrears, including possession orders and recovering rent which is owed to you. We also deal with disputes concerning lodger agreements and can even help you if there isn’t a written tenancy agreement in place.
If you use a letting agent to manage your property, we’re happy to deal with them directly with your authority.
Most residential landlords aren’t multi-national corporations with bulging property portfolios. Most are simply investors. But whatever your reason for becoming a landlord, one thing is certain – the process of letting and managing your property can be time-consuming and complicated.
If you’re in a dispute with a tenant, need advice on evicting a tenant or you want practical help on any other matter, call our landlord solicitors in Bristol and South Gloucestershire on 0117 325 2929 or complete our online enquiry form.
