Landlord Services and Disputes
Managing residential property matters as a landlord can be demanding work, and it is good to be aware of legislation which protects your investments, especially if you end up in a dispute with a tenant.
Disagreements between landlords and tenants can often be difficult and challenging to resolve, and it’s often enormously valuable to have the advice and guidance from a solicitor who specialises in this area.
We understand that maintaining good relationships with tenants is important to you, and if you are in a dispute with a tenant you will want a cost-effective solution that resolves the matter quickly and efficiently.
Whether a tenant has breached their obligations, owes you rent, has sub-let part of the property unlawfully or you’re looking to recover possession of the property, our Dispute Resolution team have the knowledge and experience to assist you.

This was my first experience using a solicitor, something I felt quite daunted about. Rothera Sharp (Greg and Petra) put me at ease and were very helpful.
Last year I experienced a car accident, as a front seat passenger. I put forward a personal injury claim with Rothera Sharp. From start to finish, my claim has been dealt with efficiently and professionally, and I have always felt my best interests were considered. All communications were made via letter or email to inform me of all further updates. My claim has now come to an end and I am very happy with the overall outcome. I would recommend Rothera Sharp for their service.
We cannot recommend Chris Powell of Rothera Sharp more highly. Mr Powell demonstrated the upmost professionalism with a high level of knowledge of the area for which he was representing us. Anyone needing representation/advice regarding the area of haulage will find that Chris Powell and Rothera Sharp are the best choice.
Claim dealt with efficiently and to a satisfactory conclusion. Wayne Vickers visited me at home initially and explained everything thoroughly. Professional service throughout. Recommended
