Our LandlordPLUS service has been set up specifically for registered providers (RP’s) and institutional landlords offering market rent tenancies in the private rented sector.  Clients benefit from Devonshires’ considerable experience acting for over 450 RPs, local authorities and private landlords.

Our Housing Management and Property Litigation Team is one of the largest in England and Wales, consisting of over 80 specialist lawyers who have a wealth of expertise and proven ability in this field.

The team understands the need for a fast and efficient service. We know you want solutions rather than the law and that is what we provide. We understand that in letting and managing properties for market rent, you require a tailored service that provides transparent fees together with an understanding of the specific issues that these tenancies pose.  This is a time of significant  change in the private rented sector and you will benefit from our knowledge of the proposed new statutory and regulatory requirements, including our years of experience in advising on the operation of the grounds for possession in the Housing Act 1988 as well as our knowledge of HMO and local authority licensing requirements.

Our service includes:

Template document generation/review

  • Preparation of tenancy agreements & notices
  • A fixed fee tenancy agreement and notice drafting service where we will work with you to produce standard documentation that mirrors your house style whilst ensuring adherence to all legal formalities.
  • We can also provide more bespoke drafting services depending on your requirements.

Possession claims

We offer a fixed fee possession service for all standard possession claims offering you certainty of cost. The size of our team and case management practices ensure swift turnaround.

Non-standard possession claims

Our considerable experience in provision of housing management services means that we are well equipped to advise on any claims based on the grounds for possession and defended proceedings, be it claims for possession based on breach of tenancy or antisocial behaviour,  counterclaims for disrepair or defences to possession claims based on discrimination.

Rent increases

If contractual mechanisms for increasing rents are removed as promised in the Renters Reform Bill, we have years of experience in advising clients on how to adhere to the requirements of s13 Housing Act 1988 rent increase notices and can offer a checking and advice service to ensure rent increase notices comply with the relevant statutory requirements.

Advice and assistance

We offer clear accessible advice on a range of issues including tenancy deposit handling, access for gas and electricity servicing, HMO licencing requirements and dealing with tenancy breach.

Debt recovery

We offer a full fixed fee service for recovery of former tenant arrears and associated debts.
