Landlord & Tenant

Here at mosshaselhurst Solicitors we can advise you on how to deal with residential Landlord and Tenants matters.


Landlords have a legal responsibility to maintain the  rented property in compliance with health and safety standards, to issue safety certificates and to follow the correct procedures when securing a tenant’s deposit.

We can :

  • review  an existing Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement or provide advice on problems as they arise
  •  offer assistance to any tenant requiring advice on their rights
  •  check to ensure that any eviction notice has been validly served
  •  arrange representation at Court if required.


Difficulties may arise such as  non-payment of rent, damage to property or Tenants refusing to leave at the end of a tenancy.

Evicting Tenants can be a complex and difficult process and strict procedures must be followed.  Tenants with substantial rent arrears can undermine investments and cash flow. One simple mistake during the eviction process can lead to delays in repossessing a property.  Failure by a Landlord to follow the correct legal procedure can lead to an illegal eviction.  The only way to legally evict a Tenant is to obtain a Possession Order from the Court.

We offer an efficient  service to any Landlord who is seeking possession of a property.

Our professional and efficient team are able to assist with:

  • Preparation of an Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement at the outset; review of an existing Agreement or provide solutions to problems as they arise
  • The preparation of all paperwork including the required eviction notice to the Tenant
  • Issuing an application to the Court for a Possession Order
  • Arranging representation at Court if required
  • Instructing/liaising with a Court Bailiff should a tenant not vacate a property following the grant of a Possession Order

By instructing mosshaselhurst Solicitors at the outset of the relationship and before you take any action, you can enjoy peace of mind knowing that all legal procedures will be followed correctly.
