FAQs

What other options exist for resolving disputes between landlords and tenants?
The specific procedure varies depending on the nature of the disagreement; for instance, there exists a distinct Pre-Action Protocol for Housing Condition Claims for disrepair issues. Typically, the process initiates with negotiations between the involved parties to attempt to reach an agreement on resolving the matter.
For private tenancy disputes, mediation provides a constructive avenue, allowing parties to address issues with impartial mediator assistance. Council tenancy disputes often follow the council’s complaints process, with arbitration as a potential recourse. Arbitration, akin to a court proceeding, involves a trained arbitrator hearing both sides before rendering a decision. Our tenancy solicitors excel in alternative dispute resolution, prioritizing optimal outcomes through the most suitable methods.

How long does a tenant dispute take?
Determining the duration of a tenancy dispute entails considering numerous factors pivotal to its resolution.
The timeline for resolution is influenced by issue complexity, timing of counsel, party willingness to compromise, and potential for settlement. Negotiation resolves disputes quicker than court proceedings, which entail waiting for a date and can significantly prolong resolution. Silverstone Solicitors prioritizes expediting the resolution of landlord and tenant disputes, ensuring cost-effectiveness and safeguarding clients’ rights.
