Landlord disputes and the law

Rented properties are affiliated with people who use them for different reasons which are a potential ingredient for a landlord dispute. As far as a landlord is concerned, the property is a means of making a living whereas to the tenant it is their home which they are entitled to label as such due to their payment of rent. Bearing these conflicting interests in mind, a dispute between the landlord and their tenants can arise for a variety of reasons which can include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Outstanding rent is owed to the landlord
  • Lease renewal discrepancy
  • Squatter eviction
  • Dilapidation
  • Breach of contract
  • Unlawful sub-letting of property
  • Service charge discrepancy

More often than not most tenant/landlord disputes arise due to one believing that the other has breached their respective contract or simply because there is a conflict of interests. If a dispute involving issues such as those outlined above occur it can lead to difficulties between the tenant and the landlord which are likely to go on indefinitely without the assistance from a Civil Litigation Solicitor.

At Cartwright King we acknowledge that it is in both party’s interests to resolve any discrepancies as efficiently and sensibly as possible.
