Tenancy Disputes

from The Landlord Engine

When tenancies are set up with due diligence and then managed with care, tenancy disputes should be rare. 

Very often any breaches will be ‘accidental’ as a result of a tenant forgetting or not considering terms within their agreement. In these instances, often a gentle reminder is all that is required to nip the problem in the bud. However, there are some more serious issues where unless appropriate action is taken could turn in to a bit of a landlord’s nightmare. Some of the most common tenancy breaches are things like rent arrears, keeping a pet without permission, sharing occupation of the property and inconsiderate neighbourly behaviour. Disputes could formulate in such cases. 

Disputes could also occur where you or the tenants make a request of the other party, the initial request is ignored or the response is disliked, and a disagreement ensues. For example, a tenant could request that a certain repair is actioned, but the landlord refuses as they feel the repair is unessential and does not materially affect the property. 

When dealing with communications over such matters you must always remain professional. Creating a sound audit trail of your activities will support any court case ahead of you. Whatever the issue, contact us today for support with getting things back on track or taking more formal action.

  • COST:  £60 (£50 + vat) per written communication to the tenants / £40 (33.33 + vat) per verbal communication with the tenants.
