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.

If you had an elective surgery such as a total hip, knee or shoulder replacement, a complex trauma surgery or even a simple procedure which has gone terribly wrong, or perhaps you were misdiagnosed or your conditions worsened significantly after medical intervention, there may be grounds to make a claim for any malpractice which has caused injury, adverse effects, suffering or loss. This also includes child birth too.

They have helped claimants all over the UK claim the compensation they deserve against the public and private health sectors.
