Your landlord may be in breach of their legal obligations to repair your home.
You may have suffered past and/or ongoing disrepair. You may also have suffered some personal injury as a result or you may have suffered risk or harm to your health.
Regardless of the type of tenancy you have, whether you signed an agreement or not, your landlord is likely to have to meet statutory obligations to remedy disrepair.
Disrepair can sometimes be obvious such as broken windows but disputes can arise where the cause of the damage is not clear and or whether there is mould growth and damp.
Our specialist lawyers work on a large caseload of successful claims where they not only ensure works are completed, but recover damages for the inconvenience and loss suffered due to disrepair.
Whether you need an urgent injunction, to be re-housed or damages only our expert team can advise you of the best course of action.
