Tessa Shepperson is a lawyer and published author specialising in residential landlord and tenant law.
Her book ‘The Complete Guide to Residential Letting’ published by Lawpack (now in its 11th Edition) is a classic handbook for landlords.
She can help if you need someone for general tenancy matters, and landlords and tenants legal rights and responsibilities, including tenancy agreements, HMOs, eviction and tenancy deposit issues.
However, Tessa does not cover conveyancing or financial matters (such as mortgages). Neither does she speak on long leases or general property law matters (other than in general terms).
Subject to availability Tessa is happy to talk to researchers, and take part in programs. She is based in Norwich, Norfolk within walking distances of the BBC East Norwich studios in the Forum.
Tessa has in the past appeared on BBC TV News commenting on landlord & tenant related news items. Radio appearances include Radio 4 Moneybox, Legal Hour on LBT, Radio Five Live, Radio Norfolk and several other local radio programs speaking on landlord and tenant issues, as well as general interest programs (for example Radio Norfolk ladies at lunch).
She has also featured in many newspapers and magazines such as The Times, the Daily Mail and the Eastern Daily Press, and writes a regular column in Property Investor News magazine.
