Landlord & Tenant Claims

What makes me eligible to make a landlord & tenant, or defective premises claim?

To be eligible to make a tenant injury claim against your landlord, then you must be able to prove that your landlord was responsible for the injuries caused. Firstly, you must have a record such as an email that proves that you reported the health and safety violation to the landlord. Secondly, you must be able to prove that the landlord did not act to fix the problem.

Is there evidence I can provide to support my claim?

You can support your claim by providing the following: 

  • Details of the exact date and time of the accident

  • Evidence of correspondence between you and the landlord such as emails and text messages

  • Photographs of the housing defect/accident site and/or your injury 

  • Receipts and invoices for expenses out of your pocket. All expenses should relate to the accident and to your injury

  • A copy of your tenancy agreement

Landlord and Tenant claim FAQs

How long do you have to make a claim?

There are some time restrictions when it comes to filing a landlord and tenant claim. In most cases, you have three years to make a claim, either from the date of your injury or from the date you first realised that the treatment from your beautician or hairdresser was the reason behind your injury. However, if you are making a claim for someone who is a minor or who does not have the mental capacity to make a claim on his or her own, the three-year restriction may not apply. No matter which circumstances you fall under, it is critical that you contact our team of solicitors as soon as you are able.

Who Can Make a Landlord and Tenant Claim?

Anyone who has suffered an injury due to the actions of their landlord has the opportunity to bring a serious injury claim. There are, however, a few things to keep in mind. Time Restrictions on Claims – First, the injury must have taken place in the last three years for a claim for compensation to be pursued, based on the date the injury occurred. This time restriction applies to those age 18 or older. Make a Claim on Behalf of Loved One – If a loved one has experienced a serious injury and has a claim for compensation, you may start the process on their behalf. When your loved one is under the age of 18, the three-year time restriction does not start until their 18th birthday. Exceptions to the Rules – There may be some exceptions to the three-year rule for serious injury claims, so it is important to get in touch with us if you believe you have a claim for compensation. The sooner you reach out to our solicitors, the quicker we can start working on the serious injury claim for you or your loved one.

How Much will a Landlord and Tenant Claim Cost Me?

We understand how devastating an injury can be, not only related to your physical and mental health, but to your financial circumstances as well. Being unable to work for an extended period of time, paying for rehabilitation or home adaptations, and covering everyday living expenses before compensation for a serious injury claim arrives creates a challenge for most. Our team of solicitors recognises these difficulties due to serious injury which is why we work on a no win, no fee arrangement. With a no win no fee structure, you do not pay any funds out of pocket to start your serious injury claim for compensation. Instead, you receive free legal advice until your serious injury claim is settled. Only once your claim is successful do you pay for the legal services provided. You and your loved ones will have no up-front financial risk, ensuring you can focus on the future and getting back to the life you knew before your serious injury took place. Let us handle the rest by simply getting in touch today.

Does it matter which solicitor I choose?

It is very important that you talk to an experienced, specialist law firm like Fletchers. You should consider taking the time to research a solicitor to ensure that they have the relevant experience. Depending on your situation, charities and other similar organisations can provide you with a directory of approved solicitors and a list of questions to ask your solicitor to ensure he/she has sufficient experience / knowledge of your injury or situation.

Can I change solicitor?

It is your right, and yours alone, to decide who represents you in a claim for compensation. Using a firm without the necessary specialist expertise can prove a costly mistake. So, if you are at all unsure about the quality of legal advice you are receiving from another firm, you are perfectly within your rights to seek a second opinion and switch solicitor if you so choose.
