Landlord and Tenant

It doesn’t matter if you are leasing a commercial building or a residential property, becoming a landlord is subject to complex rules and regulations. Our expert solicitors provide advice to property owners on a wide range of landlord and tenant issues.

At Hewitts we offer advice and representation to landlords in relation to a broad range of problems while keeping a close eye on cost-efficiency.

As a landlord, what do you do if a tenant damages your property or falls behind with the rent? We can help you recover rent arrears or, if the worst happens, recover your property.

The law relating to landlords and tenants is complex and often confusing. Hewitts has a dedicated team of experts with a wide knowledge of the market and all the latest legal developments.
