Nobody wants to fall into a dispute with their landlord but sometimes, despite everyone’s best intentions disputes can take place.
If a tenant breaches a tenancy agreement it is possible that their landlord will try and evict them from the property.
The typical breaches of a tenancy agreement that landlords are likely to seek a court order for possession include;
Tenants have legal obligations under a tenancy agreement that they must observe. If these obligations are not undertaken then they risk their landlord taking legal action against them.
In cases involving allegations of a breach of tenancy agreement, it is essential to take legal advice from a housing solicitor with expertise in landlord and tenant disputes. This is especially important if your landlord has already issued a Section 8 notice of a breach of tenancy and/or is seeking repossession after serving a Section 21 Notice to Quit, or is seeking damages.
Duncan Lewis Housing Solicitors can advise social housing tenants and private rental sector tenants on a wide range of housing matters, including allegations made by a landlord of breach of tenancy and resisting repossession by a landlord.
Our team of dedicated and successful solicitors will be able to aid and advise you throughout the process. A housing solicitor can examine the legal basis for your landlord seeking repossession and can advise on the best course of action including dispute resolution and mediation as an alternative to court action and/or resisting possession proceedings by a landlord.
