Most leases are subject to regular rent reviews. We’re here to provide legal and vice guidance and handle any disputes that might arise, helping you secure the most cost-effective solution quickly.

Tenancy disputes arising between landlords and their tenants can be costly, time-consuming, and stressful for both parties. Our experienced tenancy experts will help find the best resolution, quickly.

Professional Legal Advice on Trespass and Possession Claims for Landowners and Occupiers

Trespass involves land being unlawfully occupied by someone other than the landowner. We act for both landowners and other land occupiers on claims of trespass. We’ll explain your rights, advise you on the next steps, and act in your best interests. Possession claims arise when a landlord is forced to take possession of a property by removing the tenants or occupiers. Whether you’re bringing or defending a possession claim, our dedicated property specialists can help.

Legal Protection in Property Matters

An injunction is a court order granted to prevent someone from doing something. If you’re experiencing difficulties with your neighbours or the owner of a neighbouring property, we’ll help you secure an injunction. Our team of property experts have a wealth of experience in handling leasehold disputes. Whatever the circumstances, we’ll help you understand your rights and obligations and provide representation to protect your interests.

  • Your property’s boundaries can have a significant impact on the value of your land or property. So, if you’re facing a boundary dispute, it’s important to move fast. We’ll help protect your rights and preserve the value of your property.
