Fortunately, the vast majority of disputes tenants have with their landlords can be resolved through discussion, negotiation through an agent, or with the assistance of a group such as Citizen's Advice.

However, some housing law issues can seriously jeopardise the enjoyment of a tenancy and may even threaten its very existence. In these situations, getting help from a housing lawyer experienced in landlord-tenant disputes is essential and can be crucial in ensuring a positive outcome.

Oratto's housing lawyers are experienced in all areas of the law relating to landlord-tenant disputes, many of whom have particular areas of specialism that may be especially suited to you and your circumstances.

What can a housing lawyer do for you?

A housing lawyer can provide a tenant with invaluable advice and representation in numerous situations ranging from homelessness or prospective homelessness because of unfair eviction through to cases relating to housing standards where a property is in disrepair due to a landlord's neglect of maintenance obligations.

There are also many other situations in which a housing lawyer can provide essential help. For example, you may have been diagnosed with a health condition and find yourself concerned about the tenancy rights of those living with you once you die, particularly if they are vulnerable tenants; these so-called "tenancy succession" issues can be complex and you may require legal advice.

Debt is another situation which can present significant landlord-tenant problems. If you are facing the challenges of debt, it is essential that you take control of your money before it is too late; a good housing lawyer is the ideal person to help you do this.
