How can you resolve a landlord and tenancy dispute?

In most cases, simply talking to your landlord or tenant will allow you to reach a solution. However, if this is unsuccessful or the matter is complex, you might need some legal assistance to work through the issues involved.

Alternative dispute resolution

At Simplicity Legal, we are committed to helping you resolve your dispute in a stress-free, quick and affordable manner. In the majority of cases, we will recommend you try negotiationmediation or another form of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) in the first instance.

As well as being quicker and cheaper than the tribunal route, these methods are more informal, flexible and give you better control over the outcome. Consequently, they have a high success rate. Our Landlord and Tenant Dispute Solicitors can advise you on the best ADR option for your dispute and assist with the process.

First-tier Tribunal for Scotland Housing and Property Chamber

Many residential property disputes can be dealt with by the tribunal, including those involving rent, repairs and entry issues. If you have tried and failed with other forms of dispute resolution, you may choose to apply to the tribunal to make a decision. Your application must be carefully prepared and supported by substantial evidence.

If it is accepted, a hearing will take place where the evidence and views of each party will be considered and a final decision is issued by the tribunal. We can guide and advise you throughout this process and develop a strong strategy for success.
