A tenancy agreement can sometimes be fraught from the outset. For the landlord it is a business arrangement, a source of income; while for the tenant it is about finding a place to live, or even to put down roots and make a home – it is little wonder that the relationship can sometimes be difficult.

However, for the most part landlord and tenant disputes are little different from disputes arising from other kinds of contract. This is because the dispute usually has its origins in the belief of one party that the other has breached its obligations.

Whatever the case, if a dispute has made the relationship difficult, it can be extremely distressing for both parties – for the landlord because the property is a key asset and for the tenant because the property is his or her home and constitutes a significant monthly expenditure.

As such it is essential that parties to these disputes obtain legal advice to help advance their full rights under the law while also minimising distress, disruption and the length of the time it takes for the problem to be resolved. By searching through the member profiles on Oratto today you can find an experienced and accredited solicitor for landlord-tenant disputes who is local to you.
