Utility bills lawyer in Kiev
The sphere of housing and communal services is in a state that leaves much to be desired. The main problems are sky-high tariffs for services combined with low quality of these services. A utility bills lawyer can become a necessary assistant, both in cases where utility bills become the cause of extremely unpleasant restrictions, and when there is a gap between the quality of the services provided and the tariffs for them.
How does a lawyer for housing and communal services of the law firm Prikhodko & Partners work?
The main tools in the arsenal of a lawyer of this profile are monitoring current changes in legislation and current practice of the Supreme Court, as well as his own practical experience in disputes with representatives of utilities, suppliers of gas, electricity, heat and water.
For your information! Utility providers often have very efficient legal departments. It is unrealistic for a consumer to defend interests on his own in such conditions. A utility bills attorney helps to equalize the resources of the parties in a dispute.
The specific steps of a specialist at Prikhodko & Partners Law Firm depend on the stage of development of the dispute:
- if we are talking about illegal / incorrectly calculated tariffs, a claim is prepared along with a package of documents confirming the validity of the plaintiff’s claims (an agreement for the provision of services, copies of complaints to utilities and responses, a claim statement, receipts for payment, and so on);
- if a court order is issued on the debts for a communal apartment, an application for its cancellation is submitted to the court (within 10 days from the date of issuance), and then preparations are made for the consideration of the case by way of action;
- if, on the basis of a court order on a debt for a communal apartment, enforcement proceedings are opened, actions are taken to close or suspend it, if necessary, the arrest is also removed from housing and bank accounts.
What is the use of legal advice on housing and communal services?
Talking to a lawyer helps to separate myths from real facts and available legal mechanisms. For the convenience of clients, legal advice on housing and communal services at Prikhodko & Partners Law Firm is provided both in person at the office and remotely.
Important! Legal advice on housing and communal services provides an answer to a very popular question from consumers of communal services: are debts written off if they have accumulated too much and over a very long period. The answer will be related to the possibility of applying the statute of limitations for filing claims, which is three years. But the application of this procedure has a number of conditions, therefore it is not practiced as widely as they say about it.
