Although landlords may evict their tenants for a number of reasons they must do so whilst following the correct legal procedure. A tenant who has been evicted without their landlord following the correct procedure has most likely been unlawfully evicted and is potentially entitled to damages.
In cases where a tenant is facing homelessness as a result of an unlawful eviction, they will usually be entitled to Legal Aid to help them fight the eviction.
If a client is not eligible for Legal Aid for a housing or landlord & tenant case, Duncan Lewis is usually able to offer a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA).
With CFA housing cases, Duncan Lewis also offers a set fee for the initial assessment of a case so that our customers know exactlywhat they will be paying.
Our Housing Team at Duncan Lewis solicitors advise both tenants and landlords in housing matters, including unlawful or illegal eviction claims.
Duncan Lewis solicitors will also fight for any damages a tenant may be owed as a result of a landlord unlawfully evicting a tenant.
