Housing Law Covered


Here at Austen Jones Solicitors, we have an expert team able to help you with all aspects of landlord and tenant, property disputes and housing law.

We have assisted landlords, housing associations and businesses resolve all manner of issues, be it rent arrears, boundary disputes or disrepair.

Unlike the large law firms, we prioritise customer service and accessibility, making sure you are kept up to date throughout the progress of your case.

Party Wall disputes

If you are looking to start some renovation work on your property or perhaps a neighbour has begun work and you need some advice, we are on hand to help you through what can often be a stressful time. It is always best to contact a Party Wall specialist like ourselves before the work starts. However, you can call upon our vast experience and know-how at any stage to ensure you and your property are protected.

Rent arrears or eviction claims

Do you have a problem tenant behind on their rent or maybe a tenant you are struggling to evict? No problem, we are vastly experienced in dealing with all manner of disputes during and at the end of a tenancy agreement, including tenancy deposits. Our professional and personable approach can help you resolve your situation swiftly and satisfactorily.

Restrictive covenants

Increasingly, property developers are placing restrictive covenants on properties that are leaving homeowners faced with large costs should they choose to make any alterations to the property. This was an issue traditionally faced by owners of older, period properties. Such covenants should have been made clear to you upon purchasing the property. Should you need some help working with a restrictive covenant, our knowledgeable team can assist you to challenge a restrictive covenant or ensure it is maintained, if you have concerns about a neighbour’s actions.


Squatters can be a difficult situation to resolve, that’s why you should speak with experienced and trusted lawyers who can best advise you on how to resolve the issue. Here at Austen Jones Solicitors, we have helped a number of landlords remove problem squatters from both residential and commercial buildings.
