When You Can Make a Housing Disrepair Claim?
A housing disrepair claim can be made when a rented property is in a state of disrepair or is in need of repairs that the landlord has failed to carry out. The disrepair must be significant enough to affect the tenant’s living conditions and may include issues such as damp, leaks, or faulty heating systems.
To make a claim, the tenant must first notify the landlord in writing of the disrepair and give them a reasonable amount of time to carry out the necessary repairs. If the landlord fails to do so, the tenant may then be able to take legal action to claim compensation for any loss or damage caused by the disrepair, including any costs incurred as a result of the repair work.
It is important to seek legal advice before making a claim to ensure that the claim is valid and that the correct procedures are followed.
Claims That You Make for Housing Disrepair
When making a claim for housing disrepair, there are several types of compensation that may be sought, depending on the specific circumstances of the case. These can include:
Compensation for loss of enjoyment
This refers to the tenant’s right to use and enjoy their rented property without being affected by the disrepair. If the disrepair has caused the tenant to be unable to use or enjoy their property, they may be able to claim compensation for this loss.
Compensation for personal injury
If the disrepair has caused the tenant to suffer a personal injury, such as from slipping on a wet floor or being injured by a falling object, they may be able to claim compensation for their injury.
Compensation for damage to personal property
If the disrepair has caused damage to the tenant’s personal property, such as furniture or clothing, they may be able to claim compensation for the cost of repairing or replacing the damaged items.
If the disrepair has affected the tenant’s use and enjoyment of their property, they may be able to claim a reduction in rent for the period during which the disrepair was present.
In some cases, the tenant may seek an injunction to require the landlord to carry out the necessary repairs within a certain timeframe.
