Retaliatory eviction also known as revenge eviction is considered a crime in the UK. You, as a tenant, can file a complaint if your landlord tried to evict you from the property just because you asked for necessary repairs on the property.

The legal process of a retaliatory eviction can take a few months but with Legal Assist, we’ll try to eliminate your discomfort as quickly as possible.

What is the eligibility to claim a retaliatory eviction?

A retaliatory eviction claim applies if:

  • The tenant provided a complaint letter to the landlord prior to the eviction.
  • The tenant went to the local council to the landlord for improvements.
  • The tenant complained regarding the repairs and the general condition of the property to the landlord prior to the eviction.
  • The landlord gave the section 21 notice to the tenant after the complaint letter.

How much will a solicitor cost?

At Legal Assist, we will assess your case the first chance we get and provide a detailed quote. This quotation will be based on our conversation and the plan of action agreed upon.

In order to provide you with the best possible assurance and transparency, we will provide you with a contract detailing estimated costs and a timeline, either on a fixed fee basis or on an hourly basis with staged payments on account.

If the case gets complicated, for example, the case is presented to the crown court then we might agree to change the fees and leave our standard fixed fee.

No win No fee

Our panel of dedicated solicitors offers a ‘No Win No Fee’ service on Personal Injury, Housing Disrepair and Financial Claims. ‘ No Win No Fee’ is an agreement between you and your solicitor which means they will work for you without you having to pay anything upfront, or anything if your case is unsuccessful. 

Full terms and conditions will be included in your solicitors agreement. For more information visit our ‘No Win No Fee’ page.

Why should I claim?

After the incident, you are left with a lot of pain and bills. These bills are expensive as they cover your treatment, transportation cost and injuries. But, the worst is yet to come as you are unable to attend work and won’t get paid for those days either.

Now let’s look at the other side, when you claim and our solicitors fight your case, you can get compensated for your medical and transportation bills, and also for the days you were not able to go for work. It is a fair deal and you deserve it.

How do I claim

The first step is to call us for a free consultation and we’ll review your case and understand how it should proceed. Then your case will be forwarded to a solicitor who is best suited for this area.

From here, you don’t have to worry about anything as our solicitor will work on your case, gather all the information and create a file that represents you and what you’ve been through, and that you were not the one at fault.
