RESOURCES & SERVICES
Nowadays there is a huge amount of resources and services
that are readily available to tenants. Amongst these are Shelter,
Legal Aid, Councils themselves, and Citizens Advice that are
able and willing to assist the tenant’s “plight”. They have staff
who are familiar with Tenant Landlord Law and will happily
inform the tenants of their rights. In some cases, eviction is
further delayed because innocent mistakes the Landlord has
made are exploited for the tenants' benefit. Sometimes Tenants
are incited to make accusations – such as the property is in disrepair,
harassment, non-compliance with deposit protection process etc.
In such circumstance, evictions may become a complicated court
case and eviction can be delayed for months In this section we
include possible steps that you can take to improve your situation
to resolve rent arrears problems and to achieve a successful eviction.
