Letting a property can be profitable, but letting without a properly drafted agreement is putting a valuable asset at risk, as well as creating a huge headache for everyone involved. Copied, old or ‘off the shelf’ contracts can be ineffective, but Curtis Whiteford Crocker can swiftly produce a tailor-made tenancy agreement that will protect your interests and your valuable asset – ensuring worry-free letting. Acting for several local letting agents, we offer pre-agreed fixed fee options for County Court possession actions to save you money at a time when you may be receiving little or no rent.
Buying Your Freehold
Otherwise known as ‘Collective Enfranchisement’, the right for flat owners to form a company to purchase their freehold is especially useful to leaseholders who are saddled with a neglectful or absentee landlord. We can help bring property back under your control, which also potentially increases the market value of the property.
The Right to Manage (RTM)
RTM is a less expensive option, giving leaseholders the right to force the transfer of the landlord’s management functions to a specialist company set up and run by the leaseholders, without having to pay compensation. We can help enable leaseholders to manage their own properties the way they would wish.
We can guide you through the whole range of residential letting issues including:
- Tenancies and Guarantee Documents;
- Possession Notices under the Housing Act 1988;
- Possession Proceedings in the County Court;
- Possession Orders;
- Eviction proceedings; and
- Recovery of rent arrears.
