Landlord & Tenant

Peace of mind and security are two of the most important things you’ll be seeking when renting a property, whether you’re a landlord or a tenant.

Here at Pickering & Butters we’ve been working closely alongside both landlords and tenants for many years. Our focus is always what is in the best interest of our client, whether we are acting for the Landlord or the Tenant.

If you are a landlord, you can take advantage of our dedicated service that involves guiding you through the ever-growing raft of lettings market legislation. One of the most important pieces of documentation you can have as a landlord is an Assured Shorthold Tenancy which sets out the responsibilities your tenants will have in respect of rent and services, and any obligations for repair and permissions concerning decoration.

You may also wish to include specific clauses, for example in respect of pets. We’ll work closely with you to draft a tailored agreement that is fair for both sides, and will act to protect your investment.

If you are a tenant, you’ll need to make sure your Tenancy Agreement only makes you liable for the things you have agreed to be bound by, and that there are no hidden obligations imposed by your landlord. Our experts will take a careful look at your agreement and will advise you on all these matters before you commit to signing. This will give you peace of mind before, during and after your tenancy.

Facing a landlord or tenant dispute? Our dedicated litigation solicitors are also on hand to help. Here at Pickering & Butters, we can assist with everything landlord and tenant related.
