Somerset law firm Broomhead & Saul has today announced the launch of a new service for residential landlords across the region.
Given the economic climate, landlords are increasingly finding that tenants can fall behind with their rent; in some instances, this may only be temporary and an informal discussion will resolve matters; but in other cases or if issues persist, a landlord may decide to seek to take back their property via a possession order, through the courts.
Broomhead & Saul are now able to offer this service, covering advice and initial support through to securing an order for possession and dealing with enforcement, physically taking back the property, alongside the relevant agencies.
There may also be occasions where other issues have arisen, which are either a breach of the tenancy or which otherwise justifiably lead to the property owner wishing to regain what in some cases will be their former home, where partners have moved in together, for example.
Initial advice covers the options available and an idea of timescale from initial instructions to securing an order, to obtaining possession itself.
Do contact us to discuss your requirements, if you are facing difficulties with a tenant or are seeking advice related to investment properties and tenant issues.
A TAUNTON scout group landed a windfall from Broomhead and Saul solicitors in Taunton this week. The solicitor’s firm sponsored the land rowing event in which beavers, scouts and cubs decided to put their rowing skills to the test to help raise funds for The Royal Marine Charitable Trust and the Central Taunton Scout Group. The scout group organised this latest fund raising event on the 6th June in support of a team of Royal Marines who took part in The Non Tidal Thames 24 Challenge 2013 in May this year. The team of marines rowed the River Thames from Lechlade to Teddington, covering a distance of 125 miles, taking 24 hours, having to negotiate 42 locks and approximately 30,000 strokes. Their aim was to raise a total of £30,000 and the Scout group wanted to help them fill their float.
The 2012 Broomhead & Saul Law Prize was awarded to Adam Mercer for his achievements at Richard Huish College. Broomhead & Saul Partners Julia Clegg and Paul Brierley were delighted to present the award at the College’s annual Reunion and Prize Giving at Somerset County Cricket Ground on 16 April. Adam is studying Law at Cardiff University and the award was collected on his behalf by his mother, Mrs Mercer. Congratulations to Adam and many thanks to the staff of Richard Huish College, in particular Jackie Lake, for their kind hospitality.
Conveyancing Quality Scheme
“We are very proud to become one of the first firms in Somerset to become a firm recognised by the Law Society for the high quality of the service we provide and I am very prod of the property teams at the Taunton and Ilminster offices.”
The Conveyancing Quality Scheme (CQS) will provides a recognised quality standard for residential conveyancing practices. Achievement of membership establishes a level of credibility for member firms with stakeholders (regulators, lenders, insurers and consumers) based upon:
- the integrity of the Senior Responsible Officer and other key conveyancing staff.
- the firm’s adherence to good practice management standards.
- adherence to prudent and efficient conveyancing procedures through the scheme protocol.
This scheme will create a trusted community which will deter fraud – year on year we will drive up standards.
