I am currently having a hard situation with real estate agency’s where I’m currently living

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken so far? Have you prepared or filed any paperwork?

Nothing yet, as I’m just learning my rights. But my situation sounds very personal on their behalf may I explain ?

Lawyer's Assistant: Where is the property located?

I haven’t rented a property yet I have applied and during the process have been abused and accused over the phone
