For landlords and tenants alike in the UK, the tenancy agreement is perhaps the most important piece of paper they will come across – it is a binding, legal statement which effectively caters to both parties, protecting the rights of either side in the event of a dispute or should there be any issues with regard to the payment of rent or the upkeep of the property in question.
There should be an official, local and impartial presence available to both parties, too, available to offer legal advice and support in the drafting and implementing of the agreement – and, in some cases, ensuring that said agreement is upheld.
There may be occasions where you need to raise legal concerns over the performance of the other party – the tenant(s) or the landlord – and for this reason, we maintain our services as local, reliable experts for those in need of rental advice.

For anyone renting or leasing properties across the UK, it is always recommended that you get involved with the National Landlords Association, or NLA.
This group aims to represent the interests of all landlords currently trading in the country, offering a beacon of support to anyone who may be concerned about the effectiveness of current legislation protecting their needs.
The NLA is responsible for ensuring that landlords have a voice in legal terms, and that they are able to uphold rights in disputes with tenants regardless of their nature or form.
The NLA also lobbies to the government and offers a good starting block for any landlords unsure of their standing with certain tenancy disputes and grievances.
We, too, are one of the closest allies nearby landlords have when it comes to supporting their needs in tenancy agreement matters and beyond.
Landlord responsibilities UK and elsewhere largely remain the same – to offer a duty of care to their tenants – and to ensure that they are fully backed by relevant insurance policies should the need to replace or repair any household facilities arise.
It is within the remit of a landlord to ensure that a house or property they are renting is in liveable condition, and that they attend to any requests for maintenance and/or repair within a reasonable delay of time.
Many tenancy disputes arise as a result of poor conduct over maintenance – letting a property fall into disrepair (https://www.landlordnegligence.co.uk/disrepair/) is the worst possible thing a landlord can do – and a tenant, after some time, has full legal rights to make a claim against their landlord should they feel that they are in breach of the tenancy agreement.
Rental agreements and contracts are very important as they uphold essential rights for both parties – which is why it is just as important for the landlord to understand and accept the wording as it is for the tenant(s) to do the same.
We ensure that any clients from the surrounding areas and near me understand the importance of their rental agreement – and what it can do to protect rights moving forwards.
If there are any concerns over the conduct of either party during the course of a tenancy (however long this may have been agreed), this will result in a tenancy dispute.
This type of concern is raised with a third party who can act as mediator or middleman to ensure that both parties are equally represented – and bodies such as the Deposit Protection Service, who legally oversees all payments made and held during a tenancy, may get involved later on in proceedings.
Nearby experts such as ours are available to help both sides of a tenancy dispute understand where things may have broken down or where they may have gone wrong – and where mutual remedy can be sought. Tenancy disagreements can be easily solved – providing both parties are willing to uphold their legal obligations as per the signed document.
Whether you are a tenant or a landlord claiming negligence from the other, we will be more than happy to offer you advice and guidance.
Tenants have to agree to a certain number of clauses within their tenancy agreement before they can agree to live in your property – and if, as a landlord, you feel that your tenant(s) are negligent of the property you are letting, or that they are wilfully going against the binding contract, you may be able to make a claim for tenant negligence.
We are the closest local experts for many landlords and letting agencies in our area, and as a result, it is important that we continue to offer impartial and accurate advice to anyone who may be experiencing difficulty with troublesome tenants and those who may not be adhering to their contracts.
From vandalism to non-payment of monies, we will be able to find you a legal solution to raise and settle your claim and to ensure you are duly compensated should any wrongdoing have transpired.
Landlords, too, have to uphold certain terms – and if, as a tenant, you feel that your landlord has failed to act within the parameters set in your tenancy agreement, you may be able to claim for landlord negligence with a legal professional.
Negligence of this nature can vary between refusal to acknowledge complaints, refusal to acknowledge maintenance or repair requests which said landlord is legally obliged to attend to, or even in cases where rent monies due have escalated without prior notice or warning. In any case, we will be able to advise you and to support your needs should you be experiencing problems with your landlord.
