Landlord and Tenant

Here at Gaskell Law we can advise you on how to deal with potential problems that may occur during a Landlord and Tenant relationship. This may include non-payment of rent, damage to property or tenants refusing to leave at the end of a tenancy agreement.

Evicting Tenants can be a major problem for landlords. Tenants with substantial rent arrears can undermine investments and cash flow and one simple mistake during the eviction process can lead to delays in repossessing a property.

Eviction can be a complex and difficult process. Strict procedures must be followed. Failure to follow the correct legal procedure can lead to a landlord being found guilty of illegally evicting a tenant. The only way to legally evict a tenant is by obtaining a Possession Order from the Court.

We offer a service to any landlord who is seeking possession of a property.

Our professional and efficient team are able to assist with:

  • The preparation of all paperwork including the required Notice to the Tenant
  • Issuing an application to the Court for a Possession Order
  • Arranging representation for you at Court if required
  • Instructing/liaising with a Court Bailiff should a tenant not vacate a property following the granting of a Possession Order

By instructing Gaskell Law before you take any action, you can enjoy peace of mind knowing that all legal procedures will be followed correctly.
