Residential disputes can be complex and ongoing, especially where the dispute arises due to one party’s behaviour rather than specific damage to the property. With our expert assistance we can help you to understand your legal position and how to use the law to protect your rights.
We can also handle claims from other parties involved in residential property disputes, whether you are the freeholder or leaseholder, a representative of a property management agency or housing association, a park home occupier or a site owner.

Landlord & Tenant Residential Disputes Explained
Residential disputes between landlords and tenants arise from a number of different causing factors, for example:
- Behavioural – Antisocial behaviour, noise levels, nuisance tenants.
- Financial – Rent arrears, service charges, withheld deposits.
- Material – Damage to property, inventory disputes, property disrepair.
- Legal – Disputes over tenancy agreement terms, unlawful eviction claims.
- Criminal – Illegal occupation by squatters and trespassers.
The list goes on and generally speaking, any dispute between a landlord and a tenant – including illegal occupants of a rental property – can fall into this category. We can also help with other general property disputes, so if your particular situation is not listed here, please get in touch.
For landlords with a portfolio of properties, we can provide tenancy dispute services across your full estate as part of an ongoing arrangement. This includes checking existing tenancy agreements and drawing up new legally binding contracts with tenants that protect you against damage and antisocial tenant behaviour.
We can also advise on other relevant legal documents, such as management agreements, let-only agreements and guarantor forms, to protect landlords of managed properties and in the event that a tenant uses a guarantor to qualify for a particular property.
