Defending a claim made against you for the repossession of your property.
Important things to consider
Here are some important things you should be aware of regarding your legal problem if you have an assured shorthold tenancy:
- Section 21 of the Housing Act 1988 states landlords must give tenants a minimum of two months’ notice of their eviction (this is known as a Section 21 Notice).
- Your tenancy deposit has to be protected in a recognised deposit protection scheme.
- If your landlord has not given you the correct prescribed information they may not be able to rely on a Section 21 Notice.
- You may be entitled to compensation if your landlord has not properly protected your deposit or given you the right information.
How much will it cost?
If you would like DAS Law to help you with your dispute with a landlord, there are a number of ways of funding your legal costs, including:
Legal Expenses Insurance (LEI)
If you have a motor or home insurance policy this may include LEI cover. If so, your legal costs may be covered by that policy, subject to its terms and conditions. If you are unsure if your insurance policy includes LEI cover, we will check this with you.
If you do not have LEI cover, then we have a host of fee options which we will tailor to suit your needs. Where appropriate we will offer competitive fixed fees for each stage of your case so that you have complete certainty on your legal spend. Where this is not suitable, we offer a range of discounted hourly rates, depending on the experience and seniority of the person dealing with your case.
Our legal advisers are always happy to discuss our fee options with you in more detail.
