Forbes Solicitors has set up a new team dedicated to helping private landlords with a wide range of legal issues.
From drafting tailored tenancy agreements and recovering possession of the property to defending disrepair claims and other types of action brought by tenants, the new team is launching a series of advice events for landlords, starting today (Wednesday 6th July) and operating from within Forbes’ Housing and Regeneration department in Preston.
Sam Gorrell, an associate in Forbes’ housing and regeneration department, commented: “Our team are very experienced in this area of work and we are now expanding into the private rental market. We have the expertise to offer a quality service and will act exclusively for landlords, giving them the help and advice they need.”
Those private landlords not operating in and around the Preston area will soon be able to potentially benefit from an online service to landlords, which will be launched by Forbes in the near future.
To mark the creation of the new team, Forbes are hosting a series of events targeted at private landlords and letting agents - the first of which will be looking at the landlord’s ability to recover possession and recent changes to legislation in this area
A full list of seminars is set out below:
+ How to get possession of your property – the new regime. (Wednesday 6th July at Forbes’ Preston office)
