Housing Law

We provide expert advice to private landlords and leaseholders on all areas of housing law and property litigation including:

Possession claims for rent arrears or other breaches of tenancy obligations

Drafting tenancy agreements

Leases and related conveyancing issues

Disrepair claims

We act for landlords and property agents on serving notices on tenants to terminate tenancies and seeking possession against them, including claims to recover rent arrears

We also act for property owners to evict squatters.

For tenants struggling to cope with various housing problems, such as disrepair, the threat of eviction and homelessness, it is not uncommon for many people to approach a solicitor for advice only when the situation has become quite serious.  We can offer sensible and practical advice on what can be done if things have begun to go wrong. If court action has already begun, we can help you to through negotiations with your landlord or their solicitors or, where appropriate, can act on your behalf in the court proceedings, including claims of anti-social behaviour, harassment and succession of tenancy

We can discuss funding options with you at the outset of your case.

Housing law covers a wide range of legal issues and we have provided further information regarding various, discrete issues. Please note that our information sheets are for general guidance only and you should not rely upon them without seeking our advice regarding your specific circumstances.

If you wish to discuss your particular case or need help and advice with any court proceedings, please contact Michael Kilbane on (020) 7700 0265 or email him at michael@percyshort.co.uk.
