Housing disputes

Disputes can come in all forms, but when it concerns your home it can be an extra burden. The situation may make you feel unsafe or uncomfortable, or it can stop you using and enjoying your property like you’re entitled to. The property team at Smith Roddam Solicitors are here to provide the support you need.

Our housing solicitors are experienced in resolving all types of residential disputes, whether arising from a disagreement with or complaint about a neighbour’s behaviour, conflict with a landlord about unfair rent increases or maintenance costs, or disunity with planning authorities about planned works or permissions. A number of issues can exist outside of this too, including discord over house share arrangements, leasehold disputes, boundary issues, denial of your right to buy a council home, or needing help to stay in your home if you’ve received an eviction or repossession notice, to name a few examples.

Our expert team will take the time to ensure you understand your rights and the options available to you, and will work with you throughout the process to have the matter resolved. We will always keep you informed if there is a change in your legal position and will only ever use plain English. We understand that, despite the disagreement, you will want to continue to live in your home. It is therefore important to us that disputes are managed with tact so as to not further inflame the situation. We will first try to resolve the matter outside of court through Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR), but we can also represent your interests through First-tier Tribunal (Property Chamber) if needed.

We offer a Free First Advice service with no obligation so you can see if our services are right for you. Call our team on 01388 881 611 to see how we can help you resolve your housing dispute.
