A property is often your most valuable or important asset, whether you are a landlord, tenant, property owner or developer. Residential property disputes can regrettably arise from time to time however and you may need legal support from an experienced team of property dispute lawyers to protect your interests.
Our residential property litigation team is recognised as one of the leading property dispute resolution departments in Essex by The Legal 500 – an independent and definitive guide to the best law firms in the UK. Our experienced property dispute lawyers can assist you with the wide variety of issues that can arise from owning or renting a residential property.
For landlords of a residential property (whether you are an ‘accidental landlord’, or have a buy-to-let portfolio), our property litigation solicitors in Essex and London can help to obtain possession of your property, if your tenant breaches the tenancy agreement, or if you require vacant possession, for example, in order to sell or live in your property. Our property dispute lawyers also regularly act for landlords in defending disrepair claims and tenancy deposit protection claims.
For leaseholders or freeholders of long leasehold properties, our lease extension solicitors can assist with extending leases, buying freeholds or advising in relation to establishing a ‘right to manage’ company.
Our property dispute lawyers are also experienced in dealing with each and every problem a private homeowner might face, including boundary disputes, rights of way, rights of light and restrictive covenants. We can also deal with the more unusual legal issues that arise within residential property, such as compulsory purchase.
We understand that litigation can be expensive and our team are experienced in solving disputes using mediation, arbitration or expert determination. But, if alternative dispute resolution should fail, you will have a team of robust litigators on your side.
