Residential Tenancy Disputes


Residential Tenancy disputes can be complicated and stressful, whether you are a landlord or a tenant.

If you are a tenant facing eviction or a with a difficult landlord that will affect your well-being and the security of your home.

 If you are a landlord with a tenant who is not paying rent or is being unreasonable, you will lose rental income and have the aggravation which comes with trying to get your tenant out.  

Whether you’re a landlord or tenant the expert residential tenancy dispute lawyers at The Sethi Partnership Solicitors can help you to resolve matters as quickly and cost effectively as possible with a strategic and pragmatic plan aimed at minimising the expense and delays of court proceedings. 

Most lettings are assured shorthold tenancies under the Housing Act 1988. A landlord can get a tenant out with the “no fault” Section 21 procedure but they must give at least two months’ notice after proving the deposit was secured legally and the tenant was given current gas and EPC certificates and the Government’s “How to Rent” booklet.

If a tenant is two months in arrears, a landlord can rely on Ground 8 of the Act if once a Section 8 Notice is served. If the tenant was two months in arrears when the notice was served as well as when the case comes to court, the court can make a possession order. If the tenant claims compensation for disrepairs the court can refuse to accept that the rent is 2 months in arrears. The case can then drag on for months until it is either settled or decided at a trial and a possession order is made.

Examples of recent cases dealt with by us can be found here - residential tenancy dispute recent cases.

If the tenant will not vacate then a court fee must be paid to start possession proceedings. Before a court bailiff can evict a tenant a warrant of possession is needed and a further fee is payable.

It can take two months to get a possession order and another two months to get a bailiff to evict the tenant.
