EPA Prosecutions

EPA Prosecutions

With over thirty years of experience, Watson Woodhouse has Housing Law Solicitors available to help you navigate prosecution against your landlord.

What is an EPA Prosecution?

An Environmental Protection Act (EPA) Prosecution is to provide tenants suffering in bad conditions with a solution, known as a statutory nuisance. A statutory nuisance includes any premises in a condition that is harmful to health and/or nuisance, for example, an infestation of rodents.

Through EPA tenants can serve a notice to their landlord to remove the bad living condition within 21 days. If the conditions are not resolved within 21 days you can ask the Magistrates Court to issue a summons to prosecute the responsible party to remove or prevent the nuisance.

Do I have to pay for legal representation?

If your case is successful, all legal fees are payable by the landlord. Should your case not be successful no claim for fees from you shall be made.

This makes this course of action one of the most accessible, tenant-friendly and risk-free actions available.

A full explanation in relation to the terms of our conditional fee agreements will be provided to you prior to the commencement of any action taken on your behalf.
