Defend the Claim

Tenants occasionally defend possession claims. Sometimes, their “defence” does not amount to a defence in law. For example, complaints about the state of the property in an accelerated claim.

Occasionally, a defence might have legal merit. For example, a complaint that a notice served is not valid because insufficient notice was given or it was not received. In these cases, we will advise you on the merits of the defence and give you pragmatic, risk based advice based on our extensive experience.

Where you have brought a claim against a tenant and they have defended it, we can provide pragmatic and timely advice about your case. Where you have the grounds to fight a case, we will robustly fight it for you.
