Assured Shorthold Tenancy
You can vet your tenants before granting a lease. You can do everything in your power to make their tenancy a successful one. But you can’t eliminate the possibility that, one day, you’ll need to take that tenant to court.
Possession proceedings are all too common. They are the process by which a landlord or agent forces a tenant to leave a property, and in the past they have been a complicated, costly and time-consuming exercise.
At Brethertons we have designed a fixed price service which deals with your assured shorthold tenancy claim quickly, efficiently and economically. It’s called T-Out (Tenant Out). And it’s a sophisticated, staged case management system run by a team of property lawyers.
