Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this. Please note that I am a working Solicitor and may be on and offline as I have to attend Court and meet with clients, even at weekends. As such you may not get an instant response when you reply as this is not an ‘on demand’ live service, but rest assured I will be giving your question my immediate attention upon return. There is no need to wait here, you will get an email when I reply.
What type of tenancy do you have? Was the deposit protected please?
Not sure what type of tenancy, it just a standard private tenancy I guess. But the tenancy agreement didn't stay anything regarding protection. Normally there should be a number that I could call. But there isn't.
I assume this is a private property and not a commercial property?
It is a private property.
You need to inform the Council asap.
This is illegal
The Landlord has no power whatsoever to turn off the electric
He is in breach of his agreement with you.
If he wants you out he needs a Court order
He can't switch off the electric, you must inform the Council
Or you can seek an injunction to make him switch it on
The Council option is better as it is free
I have already done that. The council couldn't do anything for me. Just yesterday the landlord come around again and kicking the door. I call the police immediately, and guess what the police said "its his property, he can do what ever he wants". I will complaint to the IPC later.
In any event he must give you details of the deposit scheme or you can claim x3 the deposit back
The Police are wrong
He can't just come round and kick the door
You need to make another complaint
This is illegal conduct
I know, I understand the law quite well. I need to know at this point is - how do I take him to court for the things he did.
You should see someone from Citizens Advice tomorrow who can help with an urgent application to Court for an injunction
His conduct is not acceptable
This is harassment
And unlawful conduct towards a tenant
Yes you can take him to Court and CAB will help with that
But the most pressing matter is the electricity
Can I clarify anything else for you about this today please?
well, the thing is, I am moving out. Because this problem drag on and it affects my business. I am a IT consultant working for some of the best known company. I also have my own staff in China. I conduct online meeting with them daily. But during the power cut (still not restore) I can not do anything, that is potentially lead to lost of productivity. But its really hard to prove in court.
I would like to know, which court should I go to? For this type of case.
Your local one
Can I clarify anything else for you?
I understand I should hire a laywer for this matter.
anyone you could recommend?
I am not allowed to recommend anyone, against rules
But go to:
You can search local Solicitors who speciaise in Housing Law
Can I clarify anything else?
