Renting property FAQs

 

Although it seems that everybody is insisting that buying property is essential, there will always be a significant rental market. That is especially true in big cities where house prices are higher, and in university towns with a large proportion of students.

Indeed, there are very few people who don't rent at some point in their lives. The vast majority of us will rent on our own, with a partner or with friends for several years at the very least, and there are plenty of situations in which legal advice is useful - and often necessary. And this is for both tenants and landlords.

Indeed, yours truly had to negotiate a settlement with his landlord through a solicitor in 2011, due to a combination of poor maintenance of the property and withheld rent.

You could need help with:

  • Poor property maintenance (gas safety certificates, damp, broken locks etc)
  • Unpaid rent from tenants
  • Deposits
  • Agents fees
  • Eviction
