A housing disrepair claim can be made when the tenant, has reported issues with their home to the landlord. You must give the landlord time to repair the property, however if the landlord fails to carry out the required repairs you can then file a housing disrepair claim for compensation.
If you reside in a council home, social housing, or a housing association property, your landlord is required to make sure your accommodation is suitable for human habitation and functioning properly. When a property deteriorates or necessitates repairs so that it is safe and acceptable to live in, it is the landlord’s duty to provide a reasonable standard of living.
