ILC Fights for Tenants’ Rights

By | ILC Casework | No Comments

Our Debt and Housing Teams are currently in the middle of a potential class action, representing a group of tenants against their social landlord.  Tenants were lead to believe that their rent included payment for gas for heating and hot water via service charges.  So when they were issued with bills almost 2 years after moving into their flats for thousands of pound, the tenants were exceptionally shocked!  

Investigation into this matter found that the landlord had been wholly responsible for this mistake but yet were not accepting liability.  The Islington Law Centre has taken an active role in supporting these tenants to ensure that they receive the appropriate compensation by the landlord.  Watch this space for any developments and updates into this matter.
