Legal 4 Landlords is an independent company built from the ground up, a small start-up in the North West of England whose primary focus was around legal services for landlords and letting agents. Just under five years later, Legal 4 Landlords are leaders with the lettings industry for Tenant Referencing, Insurance services and Legal Services.
Legal 4 Landlords has offices across the UK which enables us to look after independent agents, multi branch agents, national letting agents and private landlords with valuable local knowledge.

Legal 4 Landlords are specialists within the lettings industry. Rather than deal with Landlord Tenant Disputes alongside all other cases, we have separated the area, allowing specialisation, streamlining of processes and built a team with one instruction: To work for our Landlord clients and deliver the results they need again and again. Our team has over 30 years of experience in fighting and winning cases for Landlords.
We have fought and won thousands of Landlord Tenant Disputes and know exactly what is needed to get a speedy resolution to your problem. The vast majority of cases are undefended and follow a standard path from commencing to completion. As such, we offer fixed rates for uncontested cases. We are also clear about what happens should a tenant mount a defence and how that is costed.
No. Our fees are fixed and clearly explained. We can do this because in the vast number of cases (over 95%), tenants do not contest eviction notices and squatters will not risk arrest and fines. In the small number of cases where they do, we will advise you on the cost of fighting a contested case according to their defence at the first hearing so there will be no last minute surprises.
Legal 4 Landlords is home to a dedicated team of solicitors, legal executives or paralegals. We do not use middlemen or outsource so we do not need to hide identities of who does what, what company or firm they are from, and even in some cases, what country they are in. You can call us at any time and we will be able to tell you exactly where your case stands. You are welcome to discuss the case with the indivduals managing it at any time on 0800 840 7133
No. We will arrange representation for you there, but you are welcome to attend and it will certainly not harm your case if you attend.
For tenant disputes, there are two notices that are usually served:
Section 8 Notice This tells your tenant that they have 14 days to pay their rent if they are in arrears, or claim for eviction on the grounds of breach of tenancy, nuisance issues or any other serious issues such as damage to the property.
Section 21 Notice This is a notice that gives the tenant two months notice that you are terminating their tenancy agreement and they need to leave the property by the end of that period.
There are additional notices that can be served in exceptional cases that may speed the process up. Only a legal firm has the experience to understand them and offer them.
Once notice served on the tenant has expired, we apply for a court order, this takes between 6-8 weeks and is dependent on the court and how many cases they have. The tenant will have to leave the property on the date ordered by the court. Should the tenant not leave, you will need to instruct a court bailiff to remove them. For squatters, we can get a High Court bailiff to act immediately.
This is dependent on a number of factors. We can put in the request for a money order at the same time as a request for possession, obtaining a money order will depend on a number of factors, such as whether the tenant actually has the funds.
