With more and more people living in privately rented accommodation we know that a good relationship with your landlord and an awareness of your legal rights is essential. Unfortunately, many landlords own no more than one or two properties and they are often completely unaware of their legal obligations. As a result, you may face harassment, failure to deal with essential repairs, attempts to withhold your deposit unfairly and even illegal eviction.
At Gales we know that an Englishman’s home should be his castle and we have over 20 years experience in fighting for the rights of tenants. We can help guide you through the process and make sure that you know what your legal rights are and what your landlord can and cannot do. We can also guide you on ensuring you that if the worst comes to the worst and you are forced to leave, you leave on the best possible terms, in a reasonable timescale, with the best hope of securing new accommodation.
We can advise you on:
- Eviction and Possession Proceedings
- Disrepair Claims
- Rent Deposits
- Secure Tenancies
- Assured Shorthold Tenancies
- Free initial consultation
- Fixed price quotes, where appropriate
- E-mail and telephone contact
