When making a claim for compensation, it is worth baring in mind that all potential claims could be affected by a compensation claims time limit. For example, a personal injury claim should be made within 3 years of the negligent act, whereas a criminal injury claim should begin with 2 years of the violent occurrence. The time limit can differ depending on the type of claim you wish to make, so we would recommend that you speak with one of our advisers, as they can discuss the eligibility of your potential claim and whether it meets the applicable time limit.
How No Win No Fee Damages Claims Work
If you wish to make a claim and choose to work with a solicitor from our panel, they could offer claimants with a valid claim a no win no fee agreement. An agreement of this nature (also known as a Conditional Fee Agreement) is a signed contract between the claimant and the solicitor that outlines the payment for the services provided by the solicitor.
Upon the grounds that you have a valid claim, a no win no fee agreement reduces the threat to a claimant’s finances and provides them with access to expert, legal advice. If a solicitor is successful in winning an awarded settlement for the claimant, a ‘’success fee’’ will then be deducted from the final settlement to cover the solicitors costs. By law, this fee is capped at 25%. However, if a solicitor is unsuccessful in achieving compensation after accepting a valid claim, the claimant will not have to pay for their solicitor’s fees at all.

If you have contractually met the obligations that are outlined within your tenancy agreement, your landlord should return your deposit within the legal timeframe. However, if your landlord fails to return your deposit without a reasonable explanation, this could be considered an unethical procedure and you could have grounds to claim it back from them. When making a tenancy deposit claim, you could be awarded a settlement of one to three times the deposit amount.
If your landlord fails to do any of these crucial steps, then you could make a claim;
- Fails To Protect The Deposit
- Failed To Submit A Deposit Into a Government-Backed Scheme
- Provide Tenant With Written Information
If you rent a property that has fallen into disrepair, the private landlord, housing association, or the city council who own the property should tend to the matter before further problems can arise. After all, a housing disrepair that goes unresolved could cause an injury, an illness, or cause a financial loss if not properly approached.
In order to make a successful claim for housing disrepair compensation, it is within the tenant’s responsibilities to inform the owner of the property of the issue. If the tenant has not informed the landlord of the disrepair, then the landlord is not liable for any repercussions that occur as a result. However, if the tenant has officially informed the landlord of the disrepair and they have failed to act accordingly, causing an injury, illness or financial loss that could have been avoided, then the affected tenant could have grounds to pursue a claim for compensation. Common examples of disrepair might include;
- Defective / Dangerous Electronics
- Defective Boiler
In the event of a housing disrepair, there is a pre-action protocol that tenants within a rented property should become familiar with. The protocol is provided by justice.gov and outlines some enlightening information for tenants to consider and could be extremely useful.
