How will we work for you?

Our team will develop a unique knowledge of your business, objectives and how you like things to be done. This will be your work, done your way.

In developing this offering, we contacted Estate Managers and Directors for various well-known and national companies across a multitude of industries including retail, property management and the licensed trade. We asked them what was most important to them in choosing a legal services partner for real estate management and property litigation work. The results which came back gave us the confidence that our service was, in fact exactly what clients are looking for.

Key residential services

We know that even when you have a large portfolio of properties, just one problem tenant can be extremely stressful, causing issues throughout the estate and disrupting other tenants.

The most common problem faced by any landlord is getting their property back. This comes with a minefield of constantly changing legislation and legal loopholes.

We are able to assist with the following:

  • Deregulation Act advice
  • Gas safety injunctions
  • Repair issues
  • Section 8 notices and possession proceedings
  • Section 21 notices and accelerated possession proceedings
  • Tracing/arrears recovery

Pricing

We recognise that what works for one client, may not necessarily work for all clients and therefore we have tailored our approach to offer a range of pricing structures to suit your business. The fee packages below are an illustration of what we can offer, however, we are happy to consider alternatives.

We can offer you a number of fee options such as:

  • Fixed fee menu pricing for individual transactions (pay as you go)
  • Fixed fee work bundles
  • Annual retainer for all work (all inclusive)
  • Fixed hours support
