Residential rental is a complex area to deal with. If you, as a landlord, do not comply with the many complicated rules and exceptions, even small foot falls may greatly affect your business. NJORD’s team in tenancy law will help you navigate the rules in order to obtain the greatest possible return on your property investment.
We have strong expertise in all areas of tenancy law and can assist you all the way from the beginning of the tenancy and until its termination.
Our experienced team in residential rental law advises on:
- Running of rental properties
- Implementation of the duty to offer tenants to take over the property
- Drafting of lease agreements
- Determination of rent, including the rules on cost-determined rent and determination of rent according to the value of the tenancy
- Due diligence in connection with the purchase of rental properties
- Termination of tenancies, including eviction of tenants
- Notice of termination and vacation of tenancies
- Cases regarding termination of tenancies, including vacation reports
We render assistance to public and private landlords as well as administrators and have great experience in litigating cases before the Rent Tribunal and the courts in all areas of tenancy law.
We have extensive experience in processing purchase and sale of rental properties. We assist buyers in reviewing and assessing purchase agreements. In that connection, we analyse the lease agreements and assess whether the rent is fixed according to the correct rules and whether the rental level is appropriate, as this may have a significant impact on the return on your investment.
In connection with the sale of rental properties, we can provide assistance throughout the entire sales process with everything from
- initial considerations of selling the property
- preparation of the sale
- implementation of the duty to offer tenants to take over the property
- drafting of the purchase agreement
- negotiations with the buyer
- completion of the sale
Tenancy law is complex and may be difficult to understand without legal skills/experience. However, not all decisions require the involvement of a lawyer.
We cooperate with many landlords; and sparring and counselling over several years means that landlords can deal with many of the routine tasks on their own and will only contact us if new problems require counselling.
Our recommendation is therefore to contact us in case of doubt so that we – together – can ensure that you navigate the rules and exceptions of tenancy law safely.
