HOUSING DISREPAIR SOLICITOR

£30K - £35K

LIVERPOOL CITY CENTRE

A fantastic firm in Liverpool are looking for a Housing Litigation Solicitor or Fee Earner to join their existing team at their City Centre offices.

Due to expansion my client is now looking to grow their existing Housing Disprepair Team. The firm in question is offering a fantastic benefits package and highly competitive salaries.

The role of Housing Litigator will demand an excellent understanding of all aspects of housing and disrepair, associated legislation and the litigation process. The role holder must have both the ability and experience to manage a high workload whilst at the same time have a sound understanding of local authority processes in relation to landlord and tenant issues. They should also be experienced in being able to act on behalf of the tenant in tenant / landlord disputes.

The ideal candidate for this housing litigation position will have a solid understanding of local authority processes in relation to landlord and tenant issues and social housing, and you must have experience in acting on behalf of the tenant. Ideally, the most suitable candidate for the role will have at least 2-3 years of experience independently handling a high case load of both litigated and pre-litigated housing files.

Applications are also welcome from experienced Personal Injury litgators who are unsure of what the future holds post Civil Liabilities Bill. You would need strong litigation experience but full training on Housing Disprepair will be provided.

This is an excellent role for a housing disrepair / landlord & tenant fee earner who is keen to join a team where there is a lot of scope for progression as it continues to grow,
