We are here to minimise this disruption, find solutions and prevent difficulties arising in the future.
This refreshing and sensible team advises on the full range of housing issues.

Landlord And Tenant Solicitors Serving Lambeth
Our team of three dedicated housing lawyers provides cost-effective and practical legal advice to a wide range of clients, including tenants, leaseholders, registered social and private landlords, and some of the major housing associations in London and the South East. The variety of the work we do means that we have a unique perspective on the many issues landlords and tenants face.
- Acting for tenants and leaseholders — We advise tenants on all aspects of housing law, including tenancy agreement issues, claims for disrepair — usually on a no-win, no-fee agreement, possession claims, and deposit protection and deduction issues. For owners of long leases, we provide up-to-date advice on leasehold enfranchisement and on disputes concerning service charges and repairs.
- Acting for landlords — We provide a comprehensive service to landlords, dealing with rent arrears, anti-social behaviour issues, illegal subletting, possession proceedings and other issues. We also offer bespoke advice sessions aimed at enabling landlords to proactively manage their properties to reduce the possibility of disputes with tenants.
