    We offer the following housing advice:

    When your landlord does not attend to repairs in a timely manner we understand this can be very distressing and create stress affecting your health. Landlords maybe ignoring your repeated requests for repairs to be carried out, or minimising the severity of the issue that you are forced to live with. This could include leaks from your roof/windows, structural issues, cracked walls, mould caused by damp or broken down boiler depriving you of heating and hot water. Your landlord has a duty to ensure their property is in a good condition and fit to live in.

    We offer a wealth of experience in this area, dealing with private landlords, local authority landlords as well as housing association landlords.

    Our intervention leads to prompt inspections of your home, repairs agreed to be carried out in a timely manner. We can also claim for compensation for any distress and inconvenience caused by your landlord’s failure to carry out repairs and also recover any costs for personal belongings damaged as a result of disrepairs.

    We will assess your claim to take your case on a “no win, no fee basis” so you don’t have to worry about funding your case. Call us today to find out more from one of our solicitors.

    The most common reason a tenant may find themselves at risk of repossession or eviction is due to outstanding rent or service charge, nuisance or home requirement. Your landlord may try to force you out of your home using unlawful tactics such as changing the locks or harassment to make you leave. You will need to act quickly with an experienced lawyer by your side.

    Here at Four Square Solicitor we will advice you on your rights of occupation and the process that must be followed. We can liase with your landlord to arrange a payment plan that is affordable for you to reduce rent arrears. Where your landlord fails to follow the eviction process lawfully our lawyers are experiences in challenging evictions through the Courts.
