Landlord Regulations and Offences
Becoming a landlord no longer involves simply buying a property, finding a tenant and collecting the rent.
To compliment our full service to landlords, we also deal with regulatory issues.
Landlords are touched by wide ranging regulations – the licencing of houses in multiple occupancy, gas and electricity safety, general health and safety of tenants, restrictions in methods of eviction amongst others.
Let us assist you in navigating your way through this legal minefield. We can advise in respect of compliance, as well as representing at interviews with the Local Authority, Police or Health and Safety Executive. Our advocacy team will represent you at court.
Our recent cases include a prosecution by the local authority for failing to licence several houses in multiple occupancy and the prosecution of a landlord with an overcrowded and dangerous premises.
