How do I give notice to my tenants?

If you have rented out your property under an 'Assured shorthold tenancy agreement', you're entitled to regain possession of it by notifying your tenant under the terms of Section 21 of the Housing Act 1988 (known as a Section 21 Notice).

Sharing your house or flat with a lodger?

If you own your house or flat and would like to rent out one of your rooms to a lodger, it is advisable to have an agreement in place to formally record the terms and conditions under which the lodger (referred to as the 'occupier') will share your property.

What is a deposit protection scheme?

Did you know?

The word property, in everyday conversation, refers to an object owned by an individual- a bicycle, a computer, or an item of clothing - and its value to the owning party. In property law, however, the definition of property is usually reserved for physical property (houses & other buildings) within the scope of modern common law. The MyLawyer Online Property Law Service covers all aspects of residential property law online, providing comprehensive legal documents and one-to-one legal advice over the phone.
