Bogus no win no fee agreements for disrepair claims


This is where a tenant in a run down property is approached by a salesman offering a ‘no win, no fee’ agreement to bring a claim against their landlord for compensation for disrepair. 

The tenant is asked then asked to make an initial payment. However once this is paid over, no more is heard of the salesman or the company.


Tenants - do not sign no win no fee agreements without taking legal advice first, and certainly do not make any payments. Genuine no win no fee agreements do not normally require this. You can always obtain free legal advice from the Citizens Advice Bureau, a Law Centre, a Shelter office or from a solicitor (many of who will offer a free or fixed fee initial interview).
