Landlord and Tenant Solicitors Manchester
For over a century, at Davis Blank Furniss we have helped clients to work through all kinds of problems which arise as you go about your daily life. Our solicitors are able to help you through these problems, including disputes between a landlord and a tenant, which we’ve got years of experience with.
Over the years our solicitors have used their extensive experience to help tenants and landlords handle all aspects of commercial or private rental agreements. From drafting a new agreement, or negotiating any terms, to reaching a consensus on the early termination of a lease, we have the power to help.
Disputes we help with
In a landlord/tenant relationship, each party has rights, and each has obligations. Sometimes these rights and obligations can come into conflict, for example on issues such as service charges, maintenance agreements and dilapidation costs.
Typically, the issues we help with are:
Common problems for landlords
- Damage to property
- Deposit disputes
If you let property to individuals, you can protect yourself from litigation if you follow our top tips for residential landlords.
Common problems for tenants
- Unannounced landlord visits
- Repair work
- Eviction notices
As a tenant more protection from litigation is available if you continue to pay rent on time, even and especially if you are in a dispute with a landlord.
Your problem could be any of the above, or another that is unique to your case. Sometimes it may be possible to work through the disagreement without any outside help. But if things are uncomfortable for any party we strongly recommended the help of a solicitor, who can help you to talk through problems, without necessarily needing to go through court.
When conflict makes it difficult for the two parties to get along or understand each other, you can get help from a seasoned solicitor to negotiate with the other party or their representative.
We act as the voice of reason, and if a further dispute should arise, we can advise you on your rights and obligations.
With our Landlord and Tenant solicitors your agreements are always correctly prepared, and this enables you to enforce your rights and to defend your position.
So if you are having a major difficulty with a landlord or a tenant, get in touch with Davis Blank Furniss. We will assess your situation, we will arrange for future discussions, and we will take your case as far as is needed to protect you from unjust treatment.
