Landlord Tenant Disputes

Why is it important to get legal advice for a dispute involving my landlord / tenant?

Landlord and tenant legislation is complex and governs the rights and obligations of landlords and tenants.

Common landlord and tenant issues include:

  • Notice periods either party must give when vacating the property
  • Unacceptable behaviour
  • Health and safety in the property itself
  • Responsibility for repairing the property

Before you enter into a leasehold agreement, whether as a landlord or tenant, it is important that you receive the appropriate information and advice about your rights and responsibilities under the lease. This applies to residential and commercial leases, both of which are subject to stringent legislative rules.
