Ask an Property Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
Hello my name is ***** ***** I can help with this matter. I understand and sympathise with your situation. Can you tell me what your question is specifically as I would like to help. Thank you.
Ok, can you tell me what the council have said about this matter so far. Have you spoken with any of the housing charities such as Shelter etc?
sorry I am unable to speak on the phone at the moment. I don't understand what you mean by "took the fee"? I would like to help with this matter so can you tell me what the council have said about this matter so far. Have you spoken with any of the housing charities such as Shelter etc?
Ok. thank you. for the information. Firstly, I would continue to speak with Shelter and Council. You will probably make more headway with shelter to be honest. Another thing you should try before looking at legal recourse would be speak to your local citizens advice, they sometimes have people who have worked with shelter etc, they also raise issues with local MP's (which I advise you can also do yourself) This I s an effective method of having your voice heard. However if all else fails then you could look at taking legal action. Now you have stated that you are struggling with funds, so you may be entitled to legal aid (your solicitor would make the application for you) if not you could see if any of the large firms are dealing with these types of matters and may offer a case bro Bono, however, being honest, these are very few and far between. There may be some issues there concerning the Equality Act. If your ailments constitute a disability under the equality act 2010 then the council would have a legal obligation to make reasonable adjustments for you. However, this would require an in depth analysis of the situation by your solicitor. If I were you I would make as much noise as you can (legally of course) with Shelter, Citizens Advice and your local MP, do remember they only have limited powers so be patient with them. However, if all else fails look to see if you can enlist the help of a local solicitor and see if you perhaps qualify for legal aid.
I hope this information has helped. You can find a local solicitor who deals with this on the law society webpage which is;
I would be obliged if you could Click to “accept” the answer and leave me a 5 star rating (this will not cost any extra). This will tell the website that I have responded to your question, you can, of course, continue to ask any follow up questions free of charge.
