This firm is one of the top choices for landlord and tenant disputes in London with the most common disputes being late payments. “A landlord and tenant’s relationship can become strained when there are disputes between the two parties,” said Ray Crudgington, Managing Partner at Grant Saw Solicitors LLP. “This is often due to disagreements regarding service charges, rental, disrepair, and deposits. With the correct guidance, this doesn't have to be a negative experience and does not need to get to that serious point where both parties suffer.”
Late payments are one of the biggest disputes arising between landlords and their tenants. It is common, especially with the coronavirus pandemic. Some landlords have had to deal with this every month. Issuing penalties for late payments is one way to manage this effectively, but some need further assistance by turning to a landlord and tenant dispute lawyer to help them.
Another of the most common landlord and tenant disputes experienced in London includes the tenant being responsible to report damages to the property as soon as possible. At the same time, it is the landlord’s responsibility to carry out regular inspections, ensuring that the damage is reported. Written warnings need to be issued to properties that have been damaged, requesting the tenant to repair the damage. When the tenant refuses this request, landlords may use the deposit to cover the repairs. When damage is general wear and tear, this is the landlord’s responsibility. The team at Grant Saw Solicitors LLP have often assisted with disputes arising from property damage.
Ray Crudgington went on to say “Noise complaints are one of the most frustrating phone calls for landlords. When tenants become noisy, they start becoming a nuisance to the surrounding homes or apartments. When these noise complaints continue, a warning letter must be issued, based on the rules of the lease agreement or body corporate rules and regulations. In some cases, tenants are fined. We work closely with landlords to help them manage the complaints and in extreme cases, find grounds to cancel the lease.”
