Landlord & Tenant Issues
Most residential tenancies are now classified as Assured Shorthold Tenancies (‘AST’) and are highly regulated. W Davies can advise on all AST issues for both landlords and tenants alike. We can also advise on other classifications of tenancy (including long residential leases). W Davies regularly assists landlord and tenants in the following common areas, as well as more unusual disputes:
- Possession claims including eviction of squatters
- Recovery of rent arrears and service charges
- Tenancy deposit disputes
- Defective Notice period issues.
