If you believe a tenant has failed to meet the terms of a lease agreement, or you find yourself in a tenant dispute, a legal service provider is well placed to handle proceedings on your behalf. Here is some basic guidance to inform your choice of legal expert.
Disputes between landlords and tenants arise when the terms of a leasehold or tenancy agreement are not adhered to by one or both parties.
Depending on the severity of the dispute, it may be possible to resolve the issue informally. Mediation should be the next step, with a legal expert engaged to make representations personally. If a resolution still cannot be reached then court action may become necessary.
Mediation can play an important role in ensuring that both parties are able to work towards a positive resolution. A mediator is a trained professional able to present each party’s concerns. Importantly, a mediator can also help to prevent court proceedings, which can cost a considerable sum of money and leave the responsibility for making a decision with a third party judge.
It is worth considering a number of factors when choosing a legal expert to handle a dispute with a tenant. You may wish to take reputation, location, size and the cost of a firm into account before making your decision. It is also possible to compare client reviews and ratings using The Law Superstore.
