Guide to Getting Landlords Advice
Everyone needs a little advice now and then. The style of advice will differ, depending on the topic. If you are a landlord, the chances are that there are times you will need to seek advice about a situation you are dealing with. The most common advice landlords seek is legal.
Landlords often want to know about the various types of tenancy agreement, landlords’ rights versus tenants’ rights and the various clauses that may affect a tenancy agreement. The internet is a great resource, but we all know that professionals are not the only individuals on the internet offering advice. Be wary of advice you find online as there are unfortunately many unreliable sources of information online. Certainly, looking at resources for explanations of legal terms will help you understand certain aspects of your tenancy agreements. However, you do not want to act on advice given on the internet, particularly if someone is telling you of a new regulation that you must comply with. Instead you need to get proper advice from a person you can trust. There are several ways to getting landlords advice. We have a list of a few ways you can get tenancy advice that will be proper and delivered by a professional.
Ask your friends and family if they know a Solicitor who specialises in real estate. The people you know often know other individuals that you may not be acquainted with. You may even know a real estate professional who could offer the name of a Solicitor to give you the advice you need. Co- workers and neighbours are two other resources who can help you find information and advice. People tend to trust friends and family more when it comes to suggesting a person who can provide advice but the next best thing is always someone else you know. Even a tax assistant or a family lawyer may be able to answer your questions or at least know someone else who can.
Since you are a landlord you need a professional who is knowledgeable about real estate law pertaining to rental property and agreements and your rights as a landlord. Another aspect of finding the best advice relates to its cost. Solicitors do not have to charge you for their time if you are just calling to ask a question. In fact, many do not charge for the initial consultation in order to draw you in as a client. The cost of advice will vary from Solicitor to Solicitor. Often the payment required is based on the Solicitor's experience and how much time you will require from them. We should mention that when you search for landlord’s advice through a professional you should ensure that they have the licenses and qualifications required by that profession. A Solicitor must be licensed by The Law Society in order to practise law. They should not be hesitant to show you their credentials nor should they avoid giving you recommendations from other clients.
When seeking advice from a Solicitor you can also ask if there are other resources they recommend for advice or information. They may be able to point you towards a '.org, .edu, or .gov' website where you will find the answers you need.
If you are searching the internet for landlord advice the above suffixes for websites are imperative. These three options provide you advice by professionals and will therefore be better choices to help you answer your questions. They will include new laws, regulations or changes that you need to be aware of. This guide on how to find landlord advice contains suggestions. There are certainly other methods available to you that you might think of. We just want to ensure that you find the right advice for your situation.
