Landlord & Tenant

Our residential property department has been advising landlords and tenants for generations. We have experience of dealing with managed properties, student lets, block management issues and all other matters associated with rented properties.

Landlord and Tenant issues can bring with them a whole host of legal issues that are best handled by professional and highly experienced tenancy solicitors, including landlord tenant disputes. Here at Dickinson Parker Hill, we have a wealth of experience in providing legal guidance to both landlords and tenants in Ormskirk, Southport and throughout the wider Lancashire and Merseyside regions.

The experienced team here at DPH Law has a history of advising and assisting both sides of landlord tenant disputes, for both residential and commercial premises. We can help you if you are having a dispute relating to lease agreements, pre-let agreements, leases, rent deposits and a wide range of other issues relating to the contract between a landlord and a tenant.

Having access to the specialist knowledge that tenancy solicitors possess allows you to untangle the legal jargon and understand your position clearly, whether you are the landlord or the tenant in the dispute. There can often be many complexities relating to legal disputes between a landlord and a tenant, and for some it is really difficult to understand exactly what is required in order to ensure there is a smooth and satisfactory resolution for both sides that is fair and time-efficient.

More complex issues within tenancy law that require a resolution can include the interpretation of a lease in terms of clauses that allow for rent reviews and when these can be enforced, as well as the provision of service charges and insurance, and who is liable to pay them. 

We are also keen to ensure that tenants understand their rights when it comes to insolvency issues and for both parties to be clear on how and when to exercise break clauses in a contract. Lease renewals are also an aspect of a tenancy agreement that can sometimes cause legal issues between landlord and tenant.

A tenant lawyer or landlord solicitors will be able to cut through the many different angles and aspects of a contract and deliver transparent and simple explanations, in order that both sides understand the position they are in and the processes that should be legally gone through for certain conditions to be met, ensuring there are no unnecessary landlord disputes.

Landlord Solicitors – Our experienced team of tenancy solicitors understands how best to advise landlords on the implications of renting your property out and various issues you are likely to face. We can prepare tenancy agreements for you, ensuring we cover scenarios regarding non-payment of rent, damage to property, eviction and a range of other matters.

Tenant Lawyer – We can advise you on the implication of becoming a tenant and of your obligations under any tenancy agreement.  We can also help make sure you are properly represented in any negotiations with a landlord. Understanding your position and legal requirements ensures that you know how to use your space effectively and can therefore concentrate on living in the property or running your business (if it is a commercial lease).

If any disputes arise, our litigation department can assist you should matters proceed to court. Having advised both landlords and tenants for many generations throughout Ormskirk, Burscough, Southport, Wigan, Skelmersdale and across Lancashire and Merseyside, our specialist landlord and tenancy solicitors will be able to help you with any issues you may be facing, as a landlord or as a tenant.
