Renting property can yield lucrative returns, but as a landlord, your priority is ensuring that you protect your investment and that you continue to bring in rental earnings. Not only does this mean ensuring that your property does not lie idle for too long a period, but it also means making sure that you have adequate contracts and agreements in place, and that you are able to collect the rent when it is due.
Whether you own a single property or a portfolio of dozens of hundreds, and whether you offer residential or commercial leases, you should protect your investment and minimise your risk by using professional commercial property solicitors. Some landlords set out with the aim of investing in property, while others receive property as an inheritance and opt not to sell it. Whether you are an experienced landlord or are new to the business, your solicitor can assist by taking on the legal burden and requirements that exist when renting property out.
Unfortunately, no matter how careful you are in selecting your tenants and no matter how well worded the tenancy agreements are, disputes may still arise between you, as landlord, and your tenants. These disputes may be over something seemingly innocuous, but if they are left to get out of hand, it can leave you with a serious hole in your finances.
It is important that you use a solicitor to aid in tenant disputes. It may be possible to resolve the issue sooner rather than later, and it could mean the difference between a small outlay or an extended period of time when tenants have left and you are unable to rent the property again. Disputes can also escalate to become major problems, with refused payments and intentional damage to the property a rarity, but still a possibility.
Enlisting the assistance of a business solicitor that specialises in tenancy disputes means that you may be able to come to an early agreement or settlement. Alternatively, your solicitor can start legal proceedings, and even take your tenants to court over non-payment or over other ways in which a tenant can break a tenancy agreement.
