Tenancy agreement legal advice
When you pay rent to a landlord for your home, you need to be aware of the rights you have should any problems arise. If there’s an issue with plumbing or pests, your landlord may have to act. Getting tenancy advice on what your landlord is obliged to do can ease your stress at anxious times, and give you the confidence you need to resolve an issue with your accommodation.
Which? Legal can help
If you’re renting privately in England or Wales and have an assured shorthold tenancy agreement (AST), or in Scotland and have a Short Assured Tenancy, you have a contract between you and your landlord setting out the rights and obligations of both sides. Which? Legal can give you clear legal advice on your position in plain English, whenever you need it.
Your landlord may be refusing to make repairs, turning up unannounced or delaying the return of your deposit. Our lawyers and specialist legal advisers are able to provide you with the tenancy advice you need to work out exactly where you stand.
