Don’t wait

When a dispute arises between a landlord and a tenant it is crucial that you take professional advice at the earliest opportunity as the legal process can be technically complex and, if not followed properly, may result in delayed or failed action.

For landlords, we know it is essential to resolve the dispute swiftly so that the premises can be occupied again, and you do not have long void periods without payment. For commercial tenants, we know that a dispute with a landlord can often severely impact upon your business.

When dealing with landlord and tenant disputes we offer flexible funding arrangements and where appropriate, we may be able to carry out some of the legal work on a fixed fee basis.
