We will also ensure that you can claim compensation for any of your belongings that were damaged during repair works being carried out.

To assist you with your claim, if you’ve already purchased replacement items, we recommend that you keep any receipts and submit them as evidence as part of your claim.

Damage to health

We understand that disrepairs to your property also impact your health. If you or anyone in your household has suffered ill health as a result of the landlord’s failure to carry out repairs. You will be entitled to compensation this can include both physical or mental health problems.

To assist you with your claim, please ensure you keep hospital reports that show how your health has been affected.


You can claim compensation if you’ve not been able to use your home in the normal way. The level of compensation you will get depends on the level of disrepair and the rent you pay.

Reduction of rent

You can also claim a reduction in your rent or in some cases you will receive a refund of your rent. You can claim this even if your rent has been paid by housing benefit or universal credit. The amount you can claim depends on how much of your home can’t be used. If only half of your home is habitable, the court may decide that your rent should be reduced or refunded by 50%.
