Landlord and Tenant Disputes

Access Legal can help with all sorts of landlord and tenant disputes, providing landlord legal advice that our clients can depend on, resolving matters quickly to maintain income and minimise cost.


We understand the needs and priorities of property agents and landlords, so we've developed a range of bespoke services covering all aspects of legal property management.

Services that are designed to protect your investment and your rental income. Our aim is to prevent problems, but when they do arise, our focus is resolutely on minimising your costs and your loss of income.

Our property lawyers' expertise covers the full spectrum of issues and problems that may crop up in any landlord-tenant relationship, from possession claims, deposit disputes and dilapidation disputes to squatter evictions, breach of agreements and service charge recovery or disputes. We can also assist with many other leasehold disputes, resolving matters in the speediest and least costly way possible.

We can help with a number of problems on a fixed fee basis:

  • Possession proceedings - we deal with the court process from start to finish, whatever the circumstances, ensuring your case is pursued robustly and your interests remain protected.
  • Rent arrears and dilapidation actions and enforcement - we employ an effective commercial approach to rent or damages from a defaulting tenant or guarantor. We can also provide guidance on the most appropriate method of enforcement to give you the greatest chance of recovering your money.
  • Defending claims brought against landlords – as more and more tenants are making claims against their landlords we can assist with your defence in these difficult situations.

Our property lawyers can protect your interests and keep you fully advised about all the implications of becoming a landlord or managing a rental property.
