Landlords have a statutory duty to keep in repair the structure and exterior of your property and in repair and good working order the installations for electricity, gas, water and sanitation.
All our claims are funded on a no-win no fee basis; otherwise known as a Conditional Fee Agreement. You pay nothing as the case proceeds and finance is available to fund case disbursements, such as experts’ and court fees. If you win your case, the general rule is that the other side pays the winner’s costs. If we cannot recover all of our legal costs from the other side, we require you to contribute to the shortfall in our costs up to 30% of your compensation, there are no success fees or hidden charges.
We provide clients with an indemnity against adverse costs orders. This provides the client with peace of mind and makes the litigation largely risk free. We always instruct a chartered surveyor before issuing proceedings. ( our indemnity was found to be lawful in the judgement by Lord Neuberger in the case of Sibthorpe and Morris v London Borough of Southwark  EWCA Civ. 25 ) Belshaw and Curtin acted for Ms. Morris and Ms. Sibthorpe in the appeal.
