Disrepair

Landlords are required by law to ensure that your property is kept in good repair. 
When this does not happen, we may be able to help by acting on your behalf under Section 11 of the Landlord and Tenant Act 1985. In addition, the Homes (Fitness for Habitation Act) seeks to improve housing conditions, and it is a requirement as an implied covenant that homes should be ‘Fit For Human Habitation’. The ‘fitness’ will be particularly relevant as it demands adequate ventilation and a home free from damp.

The Act covers all shorthold and secure tenancies, whether a social landlord owns the property, i.e. Local Authorities and Housing Associations, or a private landlord, which could be an individual landlord or a company. If you have suffered any inconvenience, injury or illness as a result of disrepair, Antony Hodari Solicitors will work hard to help you receive the maximum compensation as well as making sure the repairs to the property are completed.

To make a claim for housing disrepair, we will look to establish the specific terms and conditions of your Tenancy Agreement. Following a review of the agreement, there may also be some other landlord obligations that may assist in deciding to what extent your landlord is liable for the disrepair to your property.

Symptoms of Disrepair

Damp & Mould Issues

Damp can be caused by a variety of problems which often relate to the structure of your home and can cause health problems for you and your family. Too often, landlords are content to paint over the symptom rather than properly repairing the cause to prevent it from happening again. The Fitness for Habitation Act imposes additional duties on landlords to provide a home free from damp and with adequate ventilation.

Leaks

Does your property suffer from leaks internally? Is it being caused by a leaking roof or from a dwelling above? If so your landlord should repair the problem, redecorate and compensate you for your damaged items.

Vermin

Your landlord should ensure that rats, mice and cockroach infestations are resolved and their entry into the property prevented.

Heating Problems

Your home must have an adequate and reliable source of heating and hot water. Broken boilers must be addressed urgently.

Drains & Gutters

Should be clear at all times and should not overflow.

Structural Cracks

Landlords must address structural movement, which causes worry and distress for tenants.

If you suffer from any of these problems

and you have reported them to your landlord without repairs being completed. Contact us now for no win no fee advice. Your landlord cannot evict you for bringing a claim for disrepair.

How much will it cost me ?

We operate on a “no win no fee” basis
If we win, your landlord will pay our reasonable fees, and if we are unsuccessful, we don’t charge. All we ask is that you are honest and co-operate with us throughout the process. There is no money to pay upfront, and we fund specialist surveyors and court fees. If we recover compensation for you, we deduct 25% +VAT as a success fee; however, the most important issue is that we will force your landlord to carry out the repairs.
