Can I file a claim for housing disrepair against my landlord?

Yes, a housing disrepair claim can be filed against your landlord who does not make the necessary repairs asked by the tenant. Your landlords are legally obligated by law to guarantee that the rented property is suitable for you and any other occupants. As a result, they will be responsible for any and all problems and repairs that may arise on the premises.

So if you haven’t heard back from your landlord after days of informing them about the damages to the property. You can claim compensation against them with the help of a housing disrepair claim.

Why you should make a housing disrepair claim?

The UK residents have the right to live and reside in a safe environment. Their homes need to be as comfortable as they like. The housing disrepair issues on the other hand make it a lot difficult for them to spend a good time in the rented property.

Additionally, the reason thousands of people apply for housing disrepair claims is because of the effects it can have on their health.

Leaks, pest infestation, damps, mould, and unsafe interior & exterior could have a serious impact on your physical and mental well-being. Not to add this also affects your finances as you will have to pay for medical costs and the days you took off during your health problems.

Keeping in mind all these troubles that housing disrepair causes, you should consider applying for a housing disrepair claim.

Uncovering the compensation for housing disrepair

If you have repeatedly asked your landlord to repair the rented property that you reside in and still they refuse to help you with your request, then you are eligible for housing disrepair compensation. Let’s have a look at what the compensation amount covers and how it gets calculated.

The amount you will eventually get awarded is based on the troubles you had in your landlord’s rented property. The compensation amount depends on,

  • Your financial loss.
  • The cost of all the repairs.
  • physical and mental stress.
  • And any secondary cost because of repairs.
  • The extent of the damages and repairs required.
