Answers to some 'frequently asked questions':
Can you tell me a bit more about your credentials?
I qualified as a solicitor in 1990 and ran my own specialist landlord & tenant law firm, TJ Shepperson, for nearly 20 years. I closed this in 2013 to concentrate on Landlord Law and my separate training business. I am fairly well respected in the industry.
If I need to cancel, what do I do?
You can cancel and get a full refund provided you let us know within 30 days of first joining as a member. Refunds after that are at our discretion. You can also get a full refund if you notify us within 7 days of your recurring payment
Does your service cover Scotland and Northern Ireland?
No, those areas have different legal systems. Neither do we cater for landlords elsewhere, eg in American or Australia (apart from ex pat landlords) . This site is only relevant for property in England & Wales UK.
Do you deal with commercial property & long leases?
We specialise in short residential tenancies, for example assured shorthold tenancies, and so we do not cover shops and offices or leases of over 7 years. Neither do we cover agricultural tenancies. However our associated solicitors Anthony Gold can advise in these areas.
Can you act as my solicitor, for example in evicting tenants?
If you need a solicitor, housing specialists Anthony Gold are associated with Landlord Law and will be happy to act for you. As I closed my law firm in 2013, I no longer take on solicitors work, although I still provide some ‘one to one’ advice services to members
Do you give tax advice?
This is a site for legal information and so does not cover tax advice. Neither can we offer any financial services. Customers are advised to speak to their accountants for tax advice.
Do you offer a membership service for businesses?
Yes, if you have several staff members who will need to use the site, there is our Premium membership. You can read about this >> here (the page will open in a new tab or window). Current Premium Members find it very useful for staff training.
Can I see your terms and conditions?
Yes, Landlord Law membership is subject to the terms and conditions you will find >> here (the page will open in a new tab or window)
If you wake up in the night worrying about a tricky landlord & tenant related problem and can't sleep - most times you will find the answer on Landlord Law. If not - pop a question on the members forum - I try to answer questions within 24 hours.
Note - are you just looking to evict your tenant? Why not try our >> Eviction Special membership?
Are you ready to join now or are you not sure?
If you are ready to join - scroll down. If you are not sure - is it because of one of the following?
"We already belong to another organisation"
If you are running a busy agency you cannot have too many sources of help and guidance! Plus, this site is specifically for legal issues. Tessa has been practising law and advising property professionals for over 20 years.
"£20 per month is quite a lot of money"
You don’t have to stay a member – you can cancel after just one month if you like. Or join for one month to see how you like the service and then upgrade later (the +plus membership is more economic long term). But monthly membership is under £0.67p per day – which is not a lot for peace of mind …
"I'm worried about the recurring payment - will I be able to stop it?"
When you join as a monthly member our third welcome email tells you exactly how to cancel. If you join as a +Plus member you will be sent an email with the cancel link a week before your membership is due to renew. If for any reason the payment still goes out – contact me (Tessa Shepperson) and I will refund it and cancel your membership manually.
"I really just want some telephone advice"
If you >> click here this will take you to a page which you can sign up for our non members telephone advice service – you get a free month of Landlord Law thrown in too! Or why not join as an annual +Plus member? You will then get a free telephone advice with me, Tessa Shepperson, as part of your membership entitlement.
