For landlords, a rental property can be a great way to make money. For tenants having somewhere secure and safe to live that is well run is vital. In both instances, we offer services to help make sure both the landlord and tenant are properly protected.
Tenancy agreements are vital for both landlords and tenants- they are contract designed to make clear the rights and responsibilities for both parties. This is why it is worth using the services of experienced legal professionals as they can ensure that a tenant is aware of their responsibilities such as the upkeep of rooms, when the rent is due and to stick to a code of conduct (no pets, no smoking, keeping the noise to a reasonable level etc.)
With a landlord, a tenancy agreement needs to cover how deposits will be paid, what the rent covers (for example if bills are included) and what a tenant needs to do in the event of an emergency.
There are also issues with regard to the end of the tenancy- this can cover practical issues such as returning keys, clearing out rooms and so forth. As well as this it can also help with regard to details such as returning deposits.
A legal professional can also advise on issues such as fire regulations, taxes and any potential issues regarding subletting, alterations or your responsibilities regarding maintenance.
It is also possible to get help regarding how to maximise your income and the range of funding options that are available to you.
The eviction process is something that both tenants and landlords should be aware of. A legal professional can consult with a landlord to make sure that the process is handled legally and that the rights of a tenant have not been violated.
Likewise, it is possible for tenants to seek legal advice if they feel that they were not given sufficient or notice that the eviction was not properly handled.
