An AST is the most common form of rental agreement in the UK, providing a framework for the relationship between landlords and tenants. It offers landlords the ability to reclaim possession of their property after a specified period, while also offering tenants security of tenure for a minimum term.

Our solicitors specialise in drafting tailored tenancy agreements, advising on deposit protection schemes, providing legal guidance on property rights and landlord obligations, resolving disputes, and offering assistance with eviction processes and notices.

Tenants can benefit from our legal expertise by receiving advice on their rights and responsibilities under AST agreements, assistance with deposit protection, resolution of disputes with landlords, and guidance on eviction processes if necessary.

Landlords are responsible for maintaining the property in a safe and habitable condition, protecting tenants’ deposits, providing proper notice before entering the property, and adhering to eviction procedures. Tenants must pay rent on time, maintain the property in good condition, and abide by the terms of the tenancy agreement.

Both parties should seek legal advice promptly to address any disputes or issues that arise during the tenancy. Our solicitors can provide guidance on resolving conflicts amicably and ensuring that all parties’ rights are upheld.

By engaging Martin Shepherd Solicitors to review their tenancy agreements, landlords and tenants can ensure that their agreements are legally sound, fully compliant with relevant regulations, and tailored to their specific needs and circumstances.

Terminating an AST requires adherence to specific procedures outlined in the law. Our solicitors can guide both landlords and tenants through these procedures, ensuring compliance and protecting their respective interests throughout the process.
