Landlord & Tenant

September 9, 2016

The regulation relating to landlord and tenant agreements is a complex area of law. It is imperative that the landlord and tenant both are aware of their respective rights and obligations. Because failing to comply with the rights and obligation could lead to serious financial and sometimes even criminal penalties. While the law is intended to protect both landlords and tenants, it is, in effect, stopping them from taking matters into their own hands. For example, landlords are unable to evict a tenant without a Court Order for possession. Attempting to remove a tenant by changing the locks to the property could mean a landlord faces up to 6 months imprisonment and/or a £5,000 fine. On top of that, a civil claim for compensation for illegal eviction can also be brought against the landlord. It is therefore crucial that the terms and condition of a tenancy agreement is agreed by both landlord and tenant from the early stage of the contract term. A poorly drafted tenancy agreement could result in disputes and legal action in the future. At Hubers Law, our experienced team of legal experts offers a full range of services for commercial as well as residential landlords and tenants. The services include: Advice for tenants who are served with a notice to vacate Advice on your legal obligations when first renting a property Advice on your legal obligations when taking or paying a deposit Advice relating to disputes that arise during the tenancy Advice on areas of dispute once a property has been vacated Claims for rent arrears and damage relating to the property Enforcement of Court orders Obtaining possession orders from the Court on your behalf Service of notices on tenants to vacate your property Tenancy agreement advice and drafting service Call us on 0203 488 0953 or email us at info@huberslaw.co.uk in order for us to take care of your legal matter relating to commercial and residential landlord and tenant issue.

A person injury could be a physical or psychological injury caused by third person. In situation where your injury was not your fault and occurred due to the negligence of others, then you can be entitled to compensation. Even if the injury is not somebody’s direct responsibility, it is possible to make a claim if there has been negligence, either on the part of an individual or a company. What types of Personal Injury Claim we do? Common personal injury claim types include: • Accidents at work – in accordance with figures from the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), there are nearly 80,000 reportable accidents at work each year. Accident at work personal injury claims may include seeking compensation for back problems caused as a result of poor manual handling policies, falls from a height, or incidents involving dangerous machinery. • Accidents in public places – This can include government-run buildings or council-owned property such as parks and communal areas like high streets. Slips, trips, and falls could be a case for compensation. • Accident in shops and supermarkets – Whether because of things like wet floors, faulty doors, or broken shelving, injuries in stores, shopping centres, and supermarkets could be cause for compensation. • Dog bite claims – Dog owners can be liable if their dog bites you and causes an injury.

With ever changing family structures whether for unmarried couples or second marriages it is even more important that Wills are structured to protect the family and to prevent disputes arising in the future. Clients often state that they want ‘simple’ Will leaving assets outright to the surviving spouse or partner but are this entirely sensible particularly where one party has children from a previous relationship? What if the survivor remarries risking family assets passing elsewhere, is dependent on full time care in the future or simply changes their Will to benefit others?  We can provide a legal advice on asset preservation structure designed to protect the surviving partner but to also ring fence the capital of the first to die. We combine our specialist knowledge and years of experience with a sympathetic and sensitive approach, when administering estates. We can give a full administration service including acting as your executors if required so that you are aware that your wishes will be carried out and to deal with all tax aspects of the administration which also include administering any ongoing trusts for example where there are minor beneficiaries or vulnerable beneficiaries.
