Defending Tenant and Landlord Rights in Court

Turcan Connell employs first and foremost alternative dispute resolution methods where possible. We believe that the majority of landlord and tenant law disputes can be resolved through arbitration, negotiation and mediation. However, while many issues can be successfully resolved out of court, we understand that in certain instances, litigation is unavoidable. Our team is comprised of skilled litigators, having substantial experience in both the Sheriff Courts and the Court of Session, and having often appeared before the Private Rented Housing Panel.
