What You Need To Know About No Win No Fee
You may be feeling put off making a compensation claim by the cost of legal fees, especially if you have been unable to work and are facing additional expenses stemming from your health problems. Any claim that you make through our panel of solicitors can be done with a no win no fee agreement.
What you need to know about such agreements is that if you enter into such an agreement with a personal injury solicitor (or any other kind of compensation solicitor) you will agree to allow them to take a minor portion of your compensation as a “success fee” their payment for their services if you receive compensation. This fee is capped at 25%. However, if you are not granted a compensation sum for a valid claim then your solicitor will not ask you for payment.

There are certain things that a landlord is required to do. If your landlord has withheld your deposit when your tenancy is coming to an end then they could be liable for a compensation claim to be made against them. The law states that a landlord must return your deposit unless there are rent arrears or damage you have caused to the property. Your landlord cannot evict you without providing a reason if they withhold your deposit. The law requires that your tenancy deposit is to be kept in a Tenancy Deposit Scheme (TDS) within thirty days of your landlord receiving it and that you receive written notice of the Tenancy Deposit Scheme being in place. Failure to do this is also potentially grounds for you to make a compensation claim. The charity Shelter, which deals with housing and homelessness, is a good source for information on your rights as a tenant in these sort of situations.
If you make a compensation claim against a landlord who is withholding your tenancy deposit and you succeed you could not only have your deposit returned to you, you could also receive compensation worth up to three times as much of the value of your original deposit.
Your landlord, housing association or letting agency is responsible for maintaining your housing to a liveable standard. This is because living in accommodation which is in a state of disrepair can pose significant health risks.
- A housing disrepair can pose the risk of fire, for instance, from faulty electricsssues with your gas pipes can pose a serious threat of gas leaks or fires.
- Damage or disrepair to your housings gutters, windows or roof can lead to water ingress which can lead to hazardous exposure to damp and mould.
- If your landlord has supplied the white goods to your housing then they could be liable for any injuries or health problems caused by faults in these appliances.
Note that your landlord, housing association or letting agency can’t be held responsible for disrepair issues that they were genuinely not aware of. In order for housing disrepair claims by tenants to be successful, there needs to be proof that the issue was brought to the attention of landlord or housing association prior to the effects on your health manifesting. This page on the government justice.gov website outlines the procedure of housing disrepair claims.
