Advice & Assistance for Landlords

Many Landlords have been affected by the current financial climate, even the larger scale Landlords such as the Council.  In an article today, it is believed that there has been a 20% increase in Bailiff’s being instructed for the recovery of unpaid Council debts, such debts including rent arrears, see article below:-


At Norrie Waite & Slater we understand the issues facing today’s Landlords.  Whether you have been a Landlord for many years or have just started out as a Landlord you need to be aware of the guidelines you need to follow when renting out your property and also when seeking possession of your property to avoid any fines or delays along the way.

Sarah Tagg of Norrie Waite & Slater says “We see many Landlords fall foul of the regulations and see many now struggling with their rental properties due to the high increase in mortgage rates.  More and more Landlords are now having to take back possession of their properties to either live in themselves or to sell as they can no longer afford the interest rates.  At Norrie Waite & Slater we can help you with Eviction Notices to Tenants 9both S21 and S8) and we can assist you to follow the correct processes.  We can also assist you with the recovery of rent arrears and even arrange Bailiffs on your behalf for the collection of such rent arrears or to take possession of your property at the end of the possession proceedings process.  Following the correct guidelines and processes may even save you money in the long run and could save lengthy delays in re-possessing your property and that’s why we’re here to help”.

Norrie Waite & Slater act for Landlords on a number of different areas including:

Non Payment of Rent  - Whether it be that your Tenant has missed a couple of payments or has stopped paying altogether, we can enter into dialogue with the Tenant to try and recover the arrears and salvage the tenancy or take steps to recovery the property.

Possession Claims – even if this is not as a result of a breakdown of the tenancy, possession proceedings can be tricky and many landlords fail with such proceedings by getting the basics wrong. We can assist in serving the correct notices on your tenants and advise on the best possession process for your circumstances. We can also represent you at Possession hearings.

Damage to Property – Any damage to property whether it be during the course of the tenancy and your tenant has made a request that it is fixed or it is revealed following their departure from the property, can often end up be convoluted to resolve. We can assist with resolving issues of with whom the responsibility lies and who should be paying for the repairs.

Given the struggling financial market, Norrie Waite & Slater also offer some fixed fee assistance for Landlord issues.  Contact us for more information call Sarah Tagg on 0114 276 6166.
