Hodge Jones & Allen are recognised as one of the highest ranking law firms for social housing and tenant law in the UK. We understand how important it is to have a place you can call home, and because it’s important to you, it’s important to us. You should never suffer in silence as tenants have rights!
You will find our solicitors are passionately committed to defending the rights of those in need of housing. We will fight vigorously to get the best possible result we can achieve. Some of our work include:
Tenants claiming disrepair against local authority landlords - Settled the claim with the tenant securing an order for the works, alternative suitable temporary accommodation for the duration of the works, compensation of approximately £10,000 plus payment of legal costs.
Compensation for tenants - Secured £29,000 in compensation and got the landlord to carry out repairs for a client who had suffered years of severe damp
Securing accommodation close to home - We represented a mother of five who was made homeless by Westminster Council after refusing to be re-housed 50 miles away in Milton Keynes. The Supreme Court quashed a previous verdict which had determined the offer of accommodation was suitable.
