Landlord & Tenant Law


Immigration Law


Becoming a Landlord, providing the correct tenancy agreement to your tenant and insuring that your property is in a safe habitable standard is essential.

The law states that it is the landlord responsibility to keep the structure and exterior of the property in good repair. The landlord must also keep the equipment for the supply of gas, electricity, heating, water and sanitation in good repair. The accommodation must have a valid gas safety certificate for any gas appliances in the property, and any furniture provided should be fire resistant.

Any failings in the above are usually the cause of a dispute between the Landlord and tenant.

Whether representing the Landlord or the tenant SMG Solicitors recognise that obtaining correct legal advise at every stage in a dispute can prevent matters escalating, and at times disputes being settled without having the need to go to court.
