As an update to Tenants’ Rights: Get Advice, if you are having problems with your landlord and want to try to solve your dispute without a lawyer, you might find the following Legal Action Group books helpful:

Repairs Tenants’ Rights by Jan Luba QC, Deirdre Forster & Beatrice Prevatt

Quiet Enjoyment (Arden & Partington)

Defending Possession Proceedings by Jan Luba QC, John Gallagher & Nic Madge

The LAG books are a great place to start as they are written in plain English for lay advisers.

For black-belt level reading:

Residential Possession Proceedings by Gary Webber

Woodfall: Landlord & Tenant

Finally, my favourite for Civil Court procedure is, Sime on Civil Procedure.

It is always important to get the latest edition of any law book as the law does change. I was in Stratford Mags the other day and a pupil barrister was hoofing around copies of Blackstones and Archbold from 2008. On seeing her look up the law in her outdated Archbold, I heard one of the barristers take her to one side and comment that this was, “dangerous”.

I agree.
