    Has anyone successfully sued landlord/letting agent for damages?

    I'm thinking of doing this myself - is there anyone here who can help me, who has successfully bought action (not defended) and won damages?

    Many thanks

    Well I have sued a letting agent.

    We have legally qualified and legally experienced members. Why don't you let us know what your situation is and we can give you an unbiased opinion as to your chances of success.


      LOTS of tenants have, usually against landlord (but sometimes agent..). This..
      - is full of fascinating cases, against landlords (council, housing association, private), against tenants etc etc ...

      e.g. Arabhalvaei v Rezaeipoor (2008, 2007), damages for harassment and disrepair, protected tenant, 1-bed flat, £180k+ (!!)

      ... or... Shefford v Nofax Enterprises (Acton) Ltd December 2006, Damages of 50% of rent for extensive damp, £2,750... etc etc etc

      As snorkerz says, tell us what the issue is & we'd love to give you a view!! Nowt person (no names, addresses etc..) as this is a public forum & there's rules!!!
      I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...
