Important things to consider
Here are some important things you should be aware of regarding your legal problem if you let out a property on an assured shorthold tenancy:
- If you wish to deduct a sum from your tenant's deposit, you must be able to prove that the tenant caused the damage to your property and go through the correct procedures under the deposit protection scheme.
- Taking a detailed inventory at the start and end of a tenancy can help resolve the dispute.
- As a landlord, you must usually give tenants a minimum of two months’ notice to bring their tenancy to an end. However, if your tenant has stopped paying their rent the notice may be shorter.
How much will it cost?
If you would like DAS Law to help you with your dispute with a tenant, there are a number of ways of funding your legal costs, including:
Legal Expenses Insurance (LEI)
If you have a motor or home insurance policy this may include LEI cover. If so, your legal costs may be covered by that policy, subject to its terms and conditions. If you are unsure if your insurance policy includes LEI cover, we will check this with you.

If you do not have LEI cover, then we have a host of fee options which we will tailor to suit your needs. Where appropriate we will offer competitive fixed fees for each stage of your case so that you have complete certainty on your legal spend. Where this is not suitable, we offer a range of discounted hourly rates, depending on the experience and seniority of the person dealing with your case.
Our legal advisers are always happy to discuss our fee options with you in more detail.
