A tenant living in rented residential property does not have to tolerate conditions of disrepair and are entitled to have essential repairs carried out by their landlords. All tenants have a contract with their landlord which will include certain duties the landlord has to the tenant. If your landlord has failed to repair faults, carry out effective repair work or refused to keep the property in good repair you may have a disrepair claim against your landlord.
At PD Law we understand that living conditions can deteriorate and the most complaints made to landlords are in regard to leaks, damp, infestations or faulty heating/hot water installations. If a landlord ignores a tenant’s complaint or unreasonably delays carrying our repair work, it can be stressful and seriously affect a tenant’s quality of life and in certain circumstances their health and wellbeing.
Our expert housing solicitors can provide tenants with housing advice and assistance. They will work with your landlord to get the repair work done and seek compensation on a no win no fee agreement. This can include a refund of rent for the period of time the tenant had to live with the disrepair, compensation for financial loss, stress and inconvenience for living in the property whilst in a state of disrepair.
