The client presented at one of CLM Limerick’s Free Legal Advice Clinics. He was living in local authority housing which was in very poor condition. The house he lived in was badly effected by damp, mould and mildew and there was no hot water. The client did not have the confidence himself to speak up as he felt he wouldn’t be listened to.
CLM Limerick’s input:
CLM Limerick advocated on the client’s behalf and arranged for the accommodation to be inspected by the Environmental Health Officer, who deemed the premises to be unsuitable.
As a result of representations made by CLM Limerick on his behalf, the client was re-housed in accommodation more suitable to his needs. The client contacted us to say that this has changed his life for the better.
