Legal Service for Public Sector landlords

We help our public sector clients with:

  • Applying for injunctions pursuant to Part 1 of the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 (the Act) with or without a power of arrest.
  • Where injunctions are breached dealing with the committal proceedings arising out of arrest or by way of paper applications.
  • Obtaining possession orders on absolute, mandatory and discretionary grounds.
  • Obtaining Closure Orders in the Magistrates’ Court pursuant to Chapter 3 of the Act where the person has engaged, or if the order is not made is likely to engage. in disorderly, offensive or criminal behaviour on the premises, or that the use of the premises has resulted, or is likely to result if the order is not made, in serious nuisance to members of the public or where there has been, or it is likely there will be if the order is not made, disorder associated with the use of the premises.
  • Obtaining injunctions where tenants fail to allow access to the landlord, after reasonable attempts have been made and the landlord cannot comply with their statutory duty to service gas appliances. We have also obtained injunctions for access to check electrical appliances or to test for  asbestos.
  • Defending disrepair claims.

We also provide advice, assistance and training in homelessness, succession, mutual exchange/transfer of tenancy and public law matters.

We can advise regarding the Equality Act 2010 including public sector equality duty and the implications of this Act.

We can also review policies to make sure they are written with the Public Sector Equality Act duty in mind.
