No. there is a specific law called the Retaliatory eviction and deregulation act 2015 that prevents revenge/retaliatory evictions. It will protect tenants from evictions when they raise a complaint about the condition of their home.
Can I claim for compensation?
Yes, there is a provision within the law that allows you to make a claim for compensation for things like; inconvenience e.g. disruption to daily life, not having full use of the home, time spent waiting in for tradespeople or inspections, stress, cleaning and financial loss eg extra heating costs. The amount will vary from case to case.
Will I have to pay for this service?

Why will my landlord resolve my issues if I use Veriwise?
We have a higher success rate than individuals trying to resolve issues because we use technology to assess your issue and identify the specifics within the law that it may have infringed. We then communicate directly with your landlord/ or agent and inform them if they choose not resolve the issue with that we may use legal action.
Do I have to tell my Landlord that I am using Veriwise?
That is up to you but we will contact them on your behalf to inform them that you have instructed us to ensure your issue is resolved and if not we may take legal action.
