Landlord and Tenant

A tenancy agreement

Whether you are a landlord, tenant, or home owner, we can advise you on your rights in the event of a dispute with your lease or tenancy agreement or property and support you in taking appropriate legal action to resolve the dispute.

At Askews we have a wealth of experience in representing both landlords and individuals in a whole range of issues including;

  • Possession proceedings and rent recovery (including service of notices under section 8 and section 21 of the Housing Act 1988)
  • Mortgage arrears
  • Tenancy deposit disputes
  • Boundary disputes
  • Homelessness
  • Property damage or disrepair
  • Eviction

You may be financially eligible to receive Public Funding (formerly 'Legal Aid'). At Askews, we hold a Public Funding Franchise for housing and debt, so we can help you with the forms and in obtaining any funding that you’re entitled to.

As with most things, prevention is better than cure! Our property department specialises in drafting residential and commercial leases - so seek our advice before you sign on the dotted line to make sure that your rights are properly protected.
