It is usually in both the landlord’s and tenant’s interests to ensure that residential property remains in good repair. Unfortunately, however, this does not always happen. We act for landlords in resolving disrepair issues with their tenants.

Tenant disrepair claims

In some cases, tenants let the condition of their home deteriorate beyond usual wear and tear. A minority of tenants willingly cause damage to a property. We can assist landlords no matter what damage has been caused – whether smashed windows, damp properties, broken furniture or ruined carpets.

Our specialist property disputes solicitors are experienced in resolving disrepair disputes on behalf of landlords. We will advise you on the best course of action, and, if appropriate, how best to recover possession of your rental property.

Defending disrepair claims against landlords

We understand that managing rental properties can be a balancing act. Sometimes, therefore, you might face a complaint from a tenant about disrepair that they say is the landlord’s responsibility. When this happens, we recommend that landlords take specialist legal advice as soon as possible. We can advise you on such complaints and act for landlords in defending any disrepair claims.
