If you are a tenant and your property is in need of repair, then do not suffer in silence!
What is Housing Disrepair?
If your landlord has been notified of any disrepair to your property and has failed to carry out the repairs within a reasonable period of time then you may potentially have a housing disrepair claim against them. If required, we will instruct a surveyor to inspect your property.
Your landlord will be informed of the disrepairs and will be asked to carry out the repairs and compensate you for the inconvenience. If your landlord fails or refuses to do so, we will issue a letter of claim and seek a court order requiring your landlord to carry out the repairs and compensate you.
Housing disrepair can be complex and confusing. It is not enough to show that your house is in need of repair. You will have to show the problem is there because your landlord has not met their repair responsibility.
Some examples of a housing disrepair claim can include:
- Water damage via faulty pipes
- Structural damage
- Damage to windows and doors
