What are common landlord and tenant disputes?

A few examples of common disputes which arise between landlords and tenants include; 

  • Property maintenance and damage
  • Cleanliness, noise and community guidelines
  • Deposits and Deposit Protection Schemes
  • Non Payments

How do you file a complaint against your landlord?

The first thing you should do if a dispute does arise, is try to settle the matter with your landlord by making a complaint to them, however, if things escalate or are of a more serious nature, seeking legal advice to make a case and take further legal action is the best way forward.

How should you handle a tenant dispute?

Whenever a conflict or dispute arises between landlords and tenants, the first thing landlords need to do is initiate and lead communications in a very level way, trying to resolve the problem without taking further action.

However, if further action is taken, seeking the help and guidance of an experienced solicitor will make an incredibly complex and stressful process simpler and easier for yourself.
