What is Housing Disrepair and how to get big compensation for it?

Introduction of Housing Disrepair

Housing disrepair is a legal process for tenants living in such property that contains some damages. Damage includes all interior and exterior repairs, for example, Cracks on Walls, Damping, Mould, Sewage problem and many problems.

The first resolution for most tenants is to obviously inform their landlord about the housing disrepair issue. But unfortunately, most landlords don’t care about it and they often ignore it. This is when the local council gets involved.

The tenants then contact the local council about the housing disrepair. There are instances where the local council efficiently resolves the issue by demanding the landlord to make the required adjustments but at other times, they fail to get the job done.

The housing disrepairs issue on the property can be damps, mould or there might be broken objects throughout the rented property. This discomfort leads the tenants to look for legal help.
