How does an Injunction work?
A number of parties are able to apply for an injunction order, as follows:
- The Local Authority
- A private provider of social housing
- The police
- A Housing Action Trust or Charitable Housing Trust
In order to obtain an injunction the applying party will make an application to the County Court, and in some circumstances straight to the High Court, and the recipient of that application will be put on notice and receive a served copy of the application in good time before the hearing. It is important that anyone receiving such an application seeks legal advice immediately.
Anti-social behaviour orders are usually applied for by the police or landlords and are dealt with by the County Court.
How can litigation solicitors help you?
As litigation solicitors, we always aim to take a commercially focused and driven approach in order to resolve a dispute in a peaceful and pragmatic manner. We consider appropriate methods of alternative dispute resolution where appropriate with the aim to keep litigation costs to a minimum.
At this stage, we’ll provide an estimate of the likely costs and discuss any appropriate funding options that might be available, such as ‘after the event’ (ATE) insurance cover.
In cases where litigation appears to be the only way moving forwards, our team of litigation solicitors are experienced in issuing and defending cases in the courts, including the High Courts.
We provide recommendations in the early steps of your matter on a fixed-fee basis and guide you throughout the litigation process from the outset to the end.
