Defended Actions


Legal Services

The Landlord Group is an organisation run by people who have dealt with hundreds of defended cases. Our lawyers are fully converse with every type of defence and counterclaim a tenant might raise and will give you the best opportunity of defeating the tenant at court and getting your property back. For defended actions, we offer a fixed fee once we have reviewed your case. The very nature of possession proceedings means that they are always the subject of a judge's decision. They are also a court process, which means that a tenant (defendant) has the absolute right and opportunity to refute anything which a landlord might be claiming in their claim. Should a defendant wish to have their say, they must do this by submitting a formal defence to your claim. In some cases a defendant may even seek to bring a claim against a landlord, in the event that this happens the court will manage how it wishes the case to be proceed to trial. That said, not all defences submitted by defendants really amount to defences, nevertheless they will be treated as such by the courts.
