Fobbed off by my local authority?

Well with the section 21's , I weigh up wether its worth instructing a solicitor to evict or not to evict. Yes, I've had several thrown out but mostly they have been successful and in dealing with these myself I have saved plenty in hefty solicitors fees.... Read More

If so, this is a woorying thought in as much that a tenant could use this as a tactic to significantly slow down an already horrendously slow eviction process. i.e., gas cert is due 1/1/21 , 4th letter drops through the door say 1/2/21. Court injunction is granted say 1/6/21.So on and so on....... Read More
