You will find our solicitors to be sympathetic and understanding. We appreciate your situation may have been misunderstood by your landlord or it might be they have acted unlawfully. Whatever the dispute might be, we can provide the legal protection you need.

A Council issued eviction proceedings against our client for anti-social behaviour following complaints about noise from our client’s family and the dogs she owned. The Council also applied for an Injunction to prevent our client from engaging in anti-social behaviour and from keeping animals in her home.
Following representations from our specialist housing solicitors, the Council allowed our client to remain in her property and to keep one of her dogs. The injunction was dropped which removed the threat of a fine or prison sentence. The judge praised our handling of the case and spared our client the distress of giving evidence in Court.
