Advice for Landlords and Tenants
We are landlord and tenant solicitors in Exeter. We deliver a housing service which provides legal advice for landlords and tenants across Devon and the south west of England. Our experienced tenancy lawyers advise on all aspects of residential lettings and landlord tenant disputes.
Legal advice for landlords
If you are a private landlord, or thinking about becoming one, our landlord and tenant lawyers will make sure you have all the required documents in place and are following the necessary legal procedures.
We can advise landlords on all types of tenure (tenant / leaseholder / lodger / licensor), dealing with deposits, and the correct procedures for ending a tenancy. Landlords must follow strict laws regarding the ending of tenancies, otherwise their actions could be deemed illegal, so it is always a good idea to take advice from specialist landlord and tenant solicitors.
Legal advice for tenants
Our tenancy lawyers work for tenants renting in the private sector as well as from councils and housing associations. We provide legal advice for tenants on matters including tenancy agreements, deposit protection and tenants’ rights.
We’re here to help
If you appoint us, a named tenancy lawyer from our housing team will support your case from start to finish. If your case manager is unavailable on the day, another member of the team will make every effort to speak to you.
We will start by meeting with you and discussing your circumstances. We will help you to understand your rights and responsibilities as a landlord or tenant and, in the case of disputes, we can also talk about options for dispute resolution.
