Residential property litigation

Fast, efficient, cost-effective dispute resolution centred on your needs

Disputes between landlords and tenants, neighbours or squatters can be incredibly stressful and potentially financially damaging. Having a legal expert on your side makes all the difference.

Our property litigation team provides a fast, efficient, cost-effective dispute resolution service which focusses on your needs and prioritises settling cases as quickly as possible out of court.

We understand how important your home or property is and work proactively with you to understand your situation, explain your options in clear language and guide you through the relevant procedures and documentation every step of the way.

Acting on both sides of the fence for landlords, tenants, neighbours, squatters, joint owners and others gives us an insight into the motivations and tactics of different parties involved and adds to the effectiveness of our support.

Disputes relating to residential property are often complex and technical because of tighter regulations. We have exceptional expertise in this field, acting regularly for homeowners, landlords and tenants.

Wherever possible, we look for options which will resolve cases amicably and at an early stage, without the need to go to court, as this is usually the most cost-effective and least stressful way to bring matters to a close. The team can offer a number of alternative forms of dispute resolution, such as mediation and arbitration.

However, where situations cannot be resolved by agreement, we have considerable expertise at all levels of court and tribunal proceedings and can represent you if the need arises.

We advise on all aspects of residential property disputes, including:

  • Enforcing landlord and tenant rights
  • Section 8 and section 21 notices and commencing court proceedings
  • Tenant default, including arrears of rent and deposit issues
  • Disrepair
  • Service charge disputes
  • Disputes with owners of neighbouring properties over boundaries, easements (e.g. rights of way, rights to park, rights to light), trespass and adverse possession
  • The legal aspects of managing a residential letting portfolio
  • Injunctions
  • Squatters
  • Restrictive covenants
  • Orders for sale and declarations of beneficial interest (TOLATA)

If you are struggling with a residential property dispute, small or large, contact a member of our specialist team in St Albans, Harpenden or Luton to see how we can help.
