Landlord and Tenant’s Obligations
When people enter into a relationship of Tenant and Landlord they make a variety of promises in the form of obligations with each other. At Equity Law Solicitors we can help you with any tenancy dispute arising from the breah of tenancy obligations.
Secure tenancies, under the Housing Act 1985, offer the highest level of security and rent control in the rented sector. Such tenancies apply to all tenants of Local Housing Authorities and those tenants of housing associations whose tenancies started prior to 15 January 1989.
