Housing, Tenant & Landlord Issues

Given letting and renting require legal support to be facilitated, it means both tenants and landlords can run into issues with one another. Here at Ask Legal, we work hard to help both landlords and tenants who are facing difficult situations. Our aim is to not only resolve the situation but get our clients the compensation they deserve.

If you are a landlord or tenant facing difficulties, please fill out our form or call our housing team on 0161 436 0006 for a free consultation and one of our expert team will get back to you as soon as possible.

Tenants

Tenants are people renting a property. They are some of the least represented groups in the UK as far as they have little in the way of guidance when things go wrong with renting a property, which can easily lead to difficulties in their lives that aren’t their fault.

Here’s what we can help you with:

Housing disrepair is the damage to your rented property which impacts your standard of living. It is your landlord’s legal responsibility to provide you with safe and comfortable housing. If you intend to remain in your home for at least a further 12 months and haven’t used a solicitor for housing disrepair before, then it’s important to ensure your landlord has provided you with adequate, safe housing.

Tenancy Deposit Claims are for when your landlord failed to protect your tenancy deposit. To protect tenants from their landlords, there is an act in law called the Landlord and Tenant Act of 1985. This act outlines the rights and duties of both the tenant and landlord. If one of the two parties involved is found in breach of this act, legal action may be taken against them. Deposit protection is a legal requirement for your landlord.

If you have made your rental issues known to your landlord and given them enough time to act and they haven’t improved your situation, you may be able to file for a lawsuit which could see you get compensation and maybe free repairs to your home.

Landlords

Honest landlords face challenges with difficult tenants and they may require legal help. It can be difficult for landlords in particular, as they often want to resolve their situation but don’t want to violate any laws, which is a very easy thing to do and could result in them having to pay compensation to their tenants instead. Because of this, landlords often seek legal help.

Here’s what we can help you with:

  • Tenant evictions
  • Resolving non-payment of rent

If you have tried to reason with your tenant without success, our housing law team will be happy to help you find a legal solution to your tenant issue, including eviction.
