Housing Disrepair Claims
We are specialists in making compensation claims for housing disrepair
If you are renting a home, whether from a private landlord or housing association, which has fallen into disrepair through no fault of your own you may have a claim against your landlord.
All landlords have an obligation to ensure that your home is in a reasonable state of repair to reside in. If your landlord has failed to repair faults which you have reported to him in your home for example, damp, mould, electrical faults, infestation problems and this has resulted in your home has becoming damaged we can help.
At Driscoll Kingston Solicitors we understand that living in poor conditions can seriously affect your quality of life as well as cause distress, this is when you need a specialist team on your side. We can help you obtain the compensation you deserve for the damage sustained to your home as a result of your landlords failure to repair and we can obtain a Court Order to force your landlord to repair your home. The Courts often award compensation of around £1500 – £3000 for those living in severe conditions in addition to ordering landlords to repair the home. You are entitled to claim for up to 6 years.
To find out whether your landlord has breached the terms of his contract to you as a tenant you will need legal assistance.
Driscoll Kingston Solicitors have a team of experts in our Housing Department specialising in this area. We can provide a fixed fee service and a ‘no win no fee agreement’ where possible. Our fees will be paid by the landlord at the conclusion of the case.
