Is your rented property in a poor state of repair?
Is your landlord is ignoring you?
Tina rents her flat through an estate agent. Her heating isn’t working and her children are getting ill with the cold.
Tina has told the letting agents about the problem but every time they send someone round, they tell her the heating is working.
She is getting nowhere and the letting agents won’t listen.
So Tina searches online for a solution, “housing disrepair legal advice” and found Swain & Co Solicitors.
Tina has a low income and so she is eligible for Legal Aid.
Swain & Co Solicitors write to her landlord explaining they could take them to Court if they don’t fix the heating.
The landlord sends someone round the next day and the heating finally gets fixed.
The letting agents even offer compensation for the delay in fixing her heating.
Tina knows that Swain & Co Solicitors would have taken her landlord to the Court if needed but was glad the problem sorted quickly without costing Tina a penny.
Your landlord is responsible for keeping your heating working over winter. Contact Swain & Co Solicitors for free if you’re feeling the chill.
