Tenant Rights

As a tenant, you may find it difficult to understand your rights in what is a very complex area of the law. As a result, you may be wary of challenging your landlord or letting agent who may be treating you unfairly and denying you your legal rights as a tenant.

The team at Woodfines is well equipped to advise you in the following matters:

  • Residential agreements
  • Residential licences
  • Tenancy deposit schemes – your rights when a landlord has failed to protect your deposit
  • Possession proceedings – whether the landlord has a right to possession and whether he has followed the correct procedures
  • Eviction – has the landlord followed the legal procedures properly and can you delay or avoid losing your home
  • Disrepair.

If you are a tenant looking for expert legal support, please contact Lynne Quarmby or call on 01234 270 600.
