what is the best way to ensure you get a solicitor who is knowledgeable about tenancy law I need to find a solicitor who is on the tenant's side who can write a letter on behalf of a tenant who has been living in a property for 10 years and has just been told the property will be sold at auction in 3 weeks and he wants them to leave for a vacant sale.
Ideally the tenant wants to stay even if the property is sold to another owner. If this is not possible the tenant wants to negotiate to leave in Oct or Dec.
The tenant wants to negotiate at the same time as keeping the relationship positive as the tenant will need a reference to rent other places in the future.
In addition the tenant will be abroad at the time of the auction so they want to know what rights the landlord has to access the property when they are abroad.
they want to know their rights so they can make informed decisions.
They live in SW London. If a solicitor needs to meet the person and see documents they are only available on Thursdays due to work commitments and are on a limited budget.
