Landlord and Tenant (Residential and Commercial)

Residential Landlord Services

If you have let a property to tenants and things start to go wrong, it can become an expensive and time-consuming experience. There are many pitfalls to avoid, whether you are seeking, for example, to recover rent arrears, evict the tenant, deal with anti-social behaviour or recover the cost of damage to your property and if you make one mistake, it could be costly to put right.

This is where ALPS Legal Practice can be particularly valuable to you. We have decades of experience of Property law within the firm and we can give you expert advice and practical help with all aspects of Property law.

Whether you are an individual who has decided to invest in the buy-to-let market or you are an estate agent or property management company dealing with hundreds or thousands of properties, we will tailor our service to meet y our needs.

We are also able to assist you with the drafting of tenancy agreements, legal notices and other documents to ensure that you are properly covered against problems later on.

We are members of the Residential Landlords Association, the link to which can be found on our Links page.

For more complex matters, we also have a good working relationship with one of, if not the, most eminent Housing Law barristers’ Chambers in the country, who have written many textbooks on the subject.

If you have problem tenants and you do not know which way to turn, give us a call for a free, no-obligation consultation with a highly experienced Housing solicitor.

Residential Tenant Services

If you are having problems with your landlord and are unsure what you can do, our experienced and friendly staff can provide you with expert advice and assistance.

For example, if your landlord is harassing you, refusing to carry out repairs, failing to return your deposit, threatening to evict you or otherwise making life difficult for you, we can help you. Whether the dispute involves legal proceedings or not, we will provide robust representation for you to ensure that you are not taken advantage of.

Commercial Landlord Services

If you are considering leasing commercial premises to tenants, whether this be offices, workshop, factory, storage or restaurant premises, etc, you are advised to have the lease professionally drafted to ensure that you are adequately protected in the future and that your exposure to losing money or having problems is limited as far as possible. This is where we can help with our Lease drafting and negotiation services. We will either draft your Lease from scratch or review any existing draft lease and we will carry out all negotiations on your behalf with the prospective tenant’s solicitors. We will also prepare any associated legal documents such as options, pre-emption agreements, etc.

We will also assist you where an existing Lease is due to come to an end to help you either negotiate new terms or end the tenancy, as appropriate. If you have a tenant who is acting in breach of contract, we can assist you to take the necessary steps to deal with this issue.

Commercial Tenant Services

If you are considering taking up occupation of commercial premises in order to carry out your business, we can offer a bespoke service to you, whereby we will guide you through the various options open to you, for example whether to take a lease, a licence or other form of occupation.

We can advise and negotiate on your behalf on matters including rent deposits and guarantees, length of term, break clauses, renewal rights, rent review, assignment and subletting, service charges, repairs, alterations and changes of use, insurance, etc and we will seek to apply the Code for Leasing Business Premises in England and Wales 2007 to ensure good practice.
