Sandra Craig


Sandra joined Astraea Linskills in February 2024 to head up the Housing Disrepair Team.

With over 30 years’ experience, Sandra has worked with some of the region’s top law firms.

Sandra has a huge wealth of experience in housing disrepair, with particular focus on housing disrepair claims against Social Housing landlords. During this time, Sandra has dealt with hundreds of claims representing both Claimants and Defendants and has a strong history of success.

In addition, to making sure that repairs are undertaken, Sandra has been very successful in recovering compensation for tenants in housing disrepair claims. She has the benefit of many years’ experience in assessing whether any other possible causes of action can be brought, such as a claim for personal injury if the client has suffered injury or their health has deteriorated as a result of the disrepair in the property.

Sandra will be assisted by a team of highly experienced litigators who are passionate about ensuring that our clients not only get the compensation they deserve but that repairs are undertaken in a timely manner.

Passionate about generating optimal outcomes for clients, she always ensures that not only their repairs are carried out but that they recover any compensation they are entitled to.

When asked why she joined Astraea Linskills Sandra said:

“For me it was an easy decision. Astraea Linskills are one of Liverpool’s fastest growing law firms. They already have an award-winning dedicated Welfare Benefits team that has an incredible record of successfully assisting clients in challenging incorrect decisions. Representing clients in claims against Social Housing Landlords is not just about getting the repairs carried out or even recovering compensation – it’s also about being a voice for our clients. Too often Social Housing tenants’ concerns are simply ignored, and they are left to live in horrendous and unhabitable conditions. Everyone has the right to live in a property that is free from disrepair and is fit for human habitation. If we can help our clients achieve this then I know I have done a good job”.

In her spare time Sandra is a passionate Liverpool FC supporter. When Sandra is not watching football or walking her dog, she loves nothing more than indulging in a bit of baking.
