Our team of experienced solicitors is committed to ensuring that you receive the compensation and repairs you deserve.

Our Range of Services

  1. Property Inspection and Assessment: Our experts will visit your property to assess the extent of disrepair. We will document all issues, including structural problems, dampness, heating, plumbing, and electrical faults.
  2. Out of Court Negotiations: We prioritize amicable resolutions when possible. Our skilled negotiators will engage with your landlord or their representatives to reach a fair and efficient settlement without resorting to court proceedings. This approach helps save time and money for all parties involved.
  3. Legal Advice: We offer legal guidance throughout the process, ensuring you understand your rights and options. Our team will advise you on the best course of action based on your specific circumstances.
  4. Documentation and Evidence Gathering: We assist you in gathering the necessary evidence to support your case, including photographs, repair reports, medical records (if health issues are involved), and correspondence with your landlord.
  5. Court Proceedings: In cases where negotiations fail or are not pursued, we are fully prepared to initiate court proceedings on your behalf. Our litigators have a strong track record of successfully representing tenants in court, fighting for the compensation and repairs they deserve.
  6. Compensation Claims: We will diligently calculate the compensation you are entitled to based on the severity of disrepair, the impact on your life, and relevant housing laws. This includes compensation for inconvenience, health issues, and any damage to personal belongings.
  7. Mediation Services: In some situations, mediation can be a cost-effective and efficient way to resolve disputes with your landlord. We can help facilitate this process to reach a mutually beneficial agreement.
  8. Emergency Injunctions: In cases of severe disrepair posing an immediate threat to health or safety, we can seek emergency injunctions to compel your landlord to take immediate action.
  9. No Win No Fee: We assist eligible clients in conditional fee agreements to ensure access to justice and representation.
