Thinking of letting out property?

Are you moving into rented accommodation?

Myers & Co Solicitors has extensive experience of advising both landlords and tenants. Whatever your position, we can help you to protect your interests.


Becoming a landlord is not simply a case of handing over the keys and collecting the rent. You have to comply with your responsibilities under the law for keeping the building safe, providing a tenancy agreement and choosing a tenancy deposit scheme. You will want to make sure that your investment is protected so make sure that the contract secures the rental return, duration of the tenancy, deposit protection and sets out obligations on both sides.

We can draft your tenancy agreements, offer guidance on tenancy deposit schemes and advise you how to protect your position with tenants if anything goes wrong.


As a tenant you have a number of rights which your landlord must fulfil regarding keeping your property in good repair, providing you with and keeping to a fair tenancy agreement, and the protection and return of your deposit. We can check whether your tenancy agreement complies with the law and safeguards your position.

Tenancy disputes

From time to time, problems can occur between landlords and tenants. Commonly, issues arise over non-payment of rent, withholding the deposit, eviction notices, building maintenance, damage to the property and poor behaviour. Our dispute resolution solicitors can help if you are engaged in a property dispute.
