HOUSING DISREPAIR

If the property you are living in is in need of repair and is not deemed safe and suitable for you to live in, then contact us and let our specialists bring a claim against your landlord.

 

Even if the lease says you’re taking the property as it is and the landlord has no obligation to make repairs, those terms are invalid. A lease cannot override the law. If the landlord doesn’t maintain a liveable rental, you have grounds to sue. It’s probably easier to sue over habitability than emotional distress

 

We are able to help you if your tenancy is currently with a housing association or council (not with a private landlord)
