Landlord & Tenant
At Trent Law, we are specialist lawyers dealing with landlord and tenant law in Nottingham. We can help with matters including the eviction process, lease assignments and general legal advice for landlords in Nottingham. We also assist in a number of other matters, including:
Evictions of Private Tenant
As part of our service, we can serve a Section 8 or 21 Notice to a tenant which will warn them to pay any outstanding rent or leave your property. Our specialist landlord law solicitors are experienced in all areas of housing law for both landlords and tenants. So, if you are looking to evict a tenant who is refusing to pay their rent or comply with their contract, look no further than Trent Law.
Tenants will usually leave your property after they have been served Notice, however, we can also help you to arrange any necessary court proceedings. This process can help you obtain a possession order and money judgement if your tenant is unresponsive to the Notice.
If your tenant has not left your property by the date set by the Judge, we can instruct bailiffs to physically remove them from your property.
We offer fixed cost for most of our standard services, which includes the entire work from start to finish. Included in our costs are also any necessary appointments, consultations and telephone calls.
