Everybody deserves to live in a home that is safe and in a good state of repair. Unfortunately some landlords fail to fulfil their duties.
- Is your property in a state of disrepair? For example is the roof leaking, is it damp or does the boiler keep breaking down?
- Have you reported this to your landlord?
- Has your landlord failed to address the problem?
If so, we may be able to help by ensuring that your landlord carries out the necessary repairs. If your landlord refuses, of the works are not satisfactory, we can take court action on your behalf.
If your landlord has failed to carry out repairs you may also be entitled to compensation for stress and inconvenience and any losses that you have suffered. Although legal aid is unavailable to pursue compensation claims, we may be able to explore alternative funding options with you.
