We offer a fixed-fee solution to Landlord and Tenant disputes in the majority of cases to take the unexpected expense out of removing a Tenant from your property.

One of the most common problems Landlords encounter is non-payment of rent. If you are letting a property and your Tenant is not paying your rent, who do you turn to? It can be tempting to try and take matters into your own hands, find the relevant Notices online and serve a copy upon your Tenant in the hope it encourages payment.

Possession proceedings are one of the most intricate and technically difficult procedures to get absolutely right. Time and time again we see Landlords who have made a demand for payment but failed to serve a notice, have served a notice but it is the wrong notice and is therefore defective, have served a notice but have not included enough detail and is therefore defective or, the Landlord did not serve the relevant documents at the outset of the tenancy and has therefore made possession of their property incredibly more difficult to obtain by default.



Oakwood Solicitors advises a number of Landlords who have encountered difficulties with their Tenant(s) and it is important that Landlords seek legal advice immediately. We can serve the relevant notices for you, ensuring they tick all the necessary boxes, advise you on time limits, liaise with the Tenants, prepare the paperwork and issue the possession proceedings, prepare the witness statements, updated statements and schedule of rent arrears (if applicable) and attend the court hearing on your behalf.

Getting possession right at the start will ensure you get the result you need. We can also assist with enforcing the order with the assistance of the High Court or County Court bailiffs thereafter.

There are numerous reasons why you might want your Tenant to leave your property. Whatever the reason, have a chat with us, don’t risk getting the procedure wrong and costing yourself more money in the long run. You’re essentially paying for peace of mind and knowing your property is in safe hands.
