Residential Property Disputes
In these difficult times, it has never been more important to combine a proactive approach with specialist legal advice to prevent expensive and time-consuming litigation.
Whether your problem is rent arrears or rent recovery, regaining possession of your property or needing to urgently extend a short lease on a flat, we can help you achieve the outcome you want through mediation, arbitration and negotiation or, as a last resort, by going to court.
We act regularly for investors and landlords as well as homeowners and leaseholders providing practical advice across the full spectrum of residential property disputes.
Often, problems can be resolved with a well-drafted solicitors’ letter. When they can’t, our in-depth knowledge of the key legal procedures and deadlines involved means we can move fast to issue notices and obtain and enforce court orders if necessary.
Our highly experienced, award-winning team of specialist disputes lawyers will work quickly to resolve your property dispute as cost-effectively as possible.
We have experience in all types of residential property litigation including:
- Taking possession of a rental property.
- Service charge disputes
- Rent arrears and rent recovery
- Repairs and breaches of covenant
- Lease extension and enfranchisement claims
- Claims for the right to buy the freehold when the landlord is missing
- Land disputes
