As a result of the changes to Legal Aid scheme, BLJ under Jhangirs leadership had to innovate and set up a highly successful housing disrepair department. Jhangir has acted for numerous tenants who lived in sub-standard accommodation and won one of the highest damages awards made in a harassment and disrepair case (£188,000). Under Jhangir’s direction BLJ started to issue private prosecutions on behalf of tenants against their landlords in the Magistrates Court under the Environmental Protection Act 1990, when very few firms were doing so. This department is extremely successful and has a success rate of around 90% of the cases.
