Is your property in need of repair?
You do not need to suffer in silence as tenants you have rights too. If you are a tenant and living in rented property, which has fallen into disrepair, you may have a disrepair claim against your landlord if they have failed to repair faults or not kept the property in good condition.
If you have been hurt or have developed an illness while living in a rented home and the failure of your landlord to look after the property has in any way contributed to your condition, you may be entitled to compensation and apply for an order by the court to have works carried out.
The landlord’s obligations are set out under several pieces of legislations, namely, the Landlord and Tenant Act (LTA) 1985, which applies to tenancies entered into after 1961. Your landlord also has various responsibilities regarding the upkeep of the property they rent out to you, these include among others:
- The property meets fire safety regulations
- Ensuring a boiler is working properly, and is safe
- Carrying out building repairs to plasterwork, roofs and other areas
- Repairing gas and water leaks
- Tackling problems with mould and damp caused by disrepair
