Residential Tenancies

At every level of seniority, Landmark’s barristers specialise in residential tenancies. Areas of expertise include:

  • Residential possession proceedings under both the Rent Act 1977 and the Housing Act 1988;
  • Applications to the First-tier Tribunal as a preliminary to forfeiture of a lease pursuant to the Commonhold and Leasehold Reform Act 2002;
  • Service charge disputes, disputes arising from the tenants’ rights of first refusal under the Landlord and Tenant Act 1987, disrepair disputes;
  • Tenants’ right to manage, applications for landlord’s consent, lease extensions and enfranchisement.

We act for both landlords and tenants. Landlord work is primarily for private and third sector landlords, including charities and housing associations.
