You need to be sure you have a valid reason to take action. We will advise you on this. If you have a repair issue that your landlord is obliged to remedy and you have informed him of the issues AND given reasonable time for them to be fixed but your landlord has failed to act then you should contact our specialist housing solicitors.
If this still doesn’t solve the problem and if the disrepair issue is serious enough we can help you make a claim for getting the repairs carried out and then claiming compensation. As well as specialist solicitors who are highly experienced in housing law we can also call upon panels of experts such as surveyors and doctors to help compile all the necessary evidence to support your case. Many people are surprised to learn that support such as Legal Aid is available in housing matters.
Here at Keoghs Nicholls Lindsell and Harris Solicitors we have highly experienced legal aid specialists who will advise you on your eligibility. If you don’t qualify for legal aid then we can offer what’s called a Conditional Fee Agreement (No Win No Fee).
Call our specialists now for advice. All initial advice is free and we will tell you exactly what options and what support is available to you – and help you get your housing issues resolved and that you receive any compensation that may be due.
