What Counts as Housing Disrepair

All properties that are rented by Councils and Housing Associations are required to be kept well-maintained and in a safe condition. The law gives rights to Tenants to ensure this is done and any repairs that are reported, are rectified in a timely manner.

If your property is affected by any of the issues listed above, or internal gas and water pipe problems, broken appliances and bathroom fittings, or any other damage to the property, we can help!

If you have contacted your Landlord about repairs that are required at your rented home and they still haven’t been completed, our team of Panel Solicitors can assist you in your process of claiming compensation against them.

Frequently Asked Questions

If you are making a claim against the property you are in YOU HAVE TO be paying your full amount of rent. If you were to stop paying your rent this could be detrimental to the claim as you would be breaching your Tenancy Agreement, which would give your Landlord the ability to make a counterclaim against you.

Any other damage to the property

There are NO upfront costs with Tenant Disrepair Claims. We work on a No Win No Fee basis, meaning you do not need to worry about putting forward any money for the claim as we will be footing all the upfront cost. You will only ever have to pay fees once your claim has been successful. Meaning you will only reap the rewards from the claim and will never be out of pocket.

If you are with a Housing Association or live in Council housing and are not in arrears, it is declared by Law that your Landlord will NOT be able to evict you from your property in connection with you taking a claim out against them.

Are you in Arrears? You would need to have a payment plan in place, this could mean you paying the minimum of £1 per month as this would act as sufficient protection against your claim.

If you are a private renter please be aware that the same law does not apply. Your landlord has the right to serve you a Section 21 Eviction Notice. This means that your landlord has the rights to evict you from the property without any apparent notice or reason to that matter. There are campaigns to try end this process from being able to go ahead.

However it is illegal for your landlord to harass you to move out of the property without using correct procedures. If your landlord does attempt to evict you we will assist you with the correct advice and support.

The compensation you will receive will depend on the scale of the disrepair to the property, how many people it has affected and the overall amount of time it took for the disrepair to be reported to the Landlord. Each property will be valued accordingly.

No, unfortunately not. To be able to make a claim you must be living in the property.
