No! All of the claims that Mellor Solicitors panel take on are brought forward on a No Win, No Fee basis. This means you don’t need to pay anything to us upfront, and will only need to pay a fee if your claim is successful. Our panel of solicitors are happy to discuss this in more depth.
There are laws that protect Social and Council Housing tenants from being evicted for starting a Housing Disrepair against a landlord. If you ensure you are not in arrears, you are protected from being evicted, even if you bring forward a claim.
Private tenants have fewer legal protections, and a landlord can serve you a Section 21 Eviction notice. There are numerous campaigns to end this, and our experts can advise you if you believe your private landlord may look to evict you. There are, however, legal protections against “revenge evictions”, and your landlord needs to go through a proper process by law. We can assist you if your landlord does attempt to evict you.
If the council serves your landlord with an improvement or emergency remedial action notice, you are safe from a valid Section 21 eviction notice for the next six months after.
