Litigant In Person (LIP)

  • A Litigant In Person” (LIP) is one who attends court and represents himself before a judge.
  • This saves the cost of legal representation but risks being under-represented and becoming overwhelmed by the proceedings, formalities and lack of knowledge of the law.
  • Not for the faint hearted particularly if the matter is emotional. If clear on what to do and the case is a straight forward there is minimal risk.

About the author


Formerly a student living in a rented room my vision focused on excellence. Letting phenomenal student houses soon became more than a day job - more a way of life.

Continuing to look after our tenants I subsequently also founded what is widely recognised as a phenomenal student lettings agency.
