Landlord and Tenant - Getting it Right

Landlord & Tenant – The De-Regulation Act 2015 – Getting it right

Landlords beware!

For landlords, in October 2015 the law of landlord & tenant changed.   Landlords now need to take notice of these important changes in the law.

The main changes centre around deposit protection and the correct serving of s.21 notices for all new tenancies created from 1st October 2015. Our specialist in landlord & tenant law will happily guide you through the changes.

Being a landlord can be and should be an enjoyable and profitable experience. For landlords who get it right, it will be. We can assist in helping landlords do that.

Newnham & Jordan Solicitors are specialists in all types of landlord and tenant cases. If you are considering entering into the world of being a landlord and wish us to advise on your obligations, or if you are a landlord already but are owed rent or simply need your property back, we will always look at the matter from your point of view and always look to take on your case in a cost effective manner. We don’t push paper around. Landlords like to see positive and decisive action. This is what we do.

We offer landlords a 2 stage fixed fee service for routine possession claims. £400 + vat for preparation of the notice, commencement of proceedings and all work up to the point of 1 hearing which is then followed by the 2nd stage fee of £200 + vat for attendance at the hearing, preparation of the warrant and attendance at the eviction. Court fees are in addition to this, normally £280 issue fee and £110 warrant fee

Not only do we advise on the law, but we give practical, sensible and cost effective advice which gets results.
