Landlord and Tenant – Rent Arrears

We recently assisted a client, whose business concerned the rent of Houses of Multiple Occupation (HMOs) and had got into difficulties with a tenant who had not only stopped paying rent, but who had also been using the accommodation for illegal activities.

The client had already issued proceedings but needed legal assistance. With our guidance and intervention, the client was able to successfully get what was a spurious Defence raised set aside, an order for possession and an order that the former tenant pay the arrears and legal costs, enabling the client to re-let the accommodation swiftly and avoiding further unnecessary and costly delay.

For this client, and many more like them, we have been able to navigate what can be very tricky legal technical issues through our practical, concise and accurate advice.
