We advise on the full spectrum of disputes. Whether you are looking to commence a claim or defend a claim against you, we are confident that we can help you achieve your objectives. In many cases it is possible to settle without litigation – for example, through Alternative Dispute Resolution. However, when necessary our property solicitors will litigate robustly in order to seek a satisfactory outcome through the courts.
Property disputes, evictions, and repossessions due to COVID
The COVID-19 pandemic has caused significant disruption and hardship for many in the UK and the number of house repossessions and renter evictions in which COVID-related hardship is a factor is likely to increase steadily.
Grants and financial assistance for residential owners and renters affected by COVID have largely ended and Citizens Advice has lots of information for people who are in debt as a result of the pandemic. https://www.citizensadvice.org.uk/debt-and-money/if-you-cant-pay-your-bills-because-of-coronavirus/
If you are a landlord and your tenants have failed to pay their rent or stick to a repayment plan for rent arrears, we can help you commence eviction and repossession proceedings. It is likely that the courts will face significant pressure in 2022 and there may be delays, so the sooner we are able to understand your situation and explain the available options the better.
Advice and Representation for all Manner of Disputes
We act for individuals who are landowners, landlords, developers, tenants and professional advisors and assist them in resolving their disputes effectively and efficiently. We offer a full range of property services including advice on:
- Disputes regarding beneficial interests in property
- Disputes over interests in property Trusts of Land and Appointment of Trustees Act (TOLATA claims) and orders for sale
- Breach of restrictive covenant disputes
- Disputes with owners of neighbouring properties (e.g. rights of way, rights to light, boundary disputes and party wall disputes)
- Nuisance and trespass claims
- Recovery of land from squatters and unlawful occupiers
- Disputes arising out of the sale and purchase of residential and commercial premises
- Professional negligence claims arising out of the sale and purchase of residential and commercial premises
- Landlord and tenant disputes
- Property repair disputes
- Misrepresentation (including Property Misdescription Act 1991)
We understand that property disputes can be sensitive and complex. Litigation may not always be the most appropriate approach, so we consider and tailor our advice and guidance to suit each client and their individual situation.
Costs in property dispute litigation can soon become unmanageable and disproportionate so we always look at the possibility of using alternative dispute resolution (ADR) methods whenever appropriate. If a resolution is not forthcoming we will offer pragmatic advice about the suitability of undertaking Court proceedings.
