FAQ – Common Housing Disrepair Claim Queries

How is it possible to make a claim against the Council or Housing Association?

As a tenant of any residential property whether it is a house or a flat you have certain rights. One of those rights is that the Council or Housing Association have a legal obligation to keep your home safe and in a reasonable state of repair. They also have a duty to make sure that any defects that you report to them are repaired in a timely manner. If your Landlord does not do that then you may have the right to claim some of your rent back in compensation.




How do I know if I can claim?

If you have any problems with your Council or Housing Association House, you have notified your Landlord of the repairs needed either to the interior or the exterior of the house and they have failed to do anything about it, there is a good chance that you may be able to make a claim not only to get the defects properly repaired but also to recover some of the rent you have paid back as compensation. You may also be able to claim for your personal belongings that have been damaged by the disrepair. If you think this applies to you, the best thing to do is get in touch with us so that we can assess your case.
