Housing Disrepair

No Win No Fee Housing Disrepair Claims

What is Housing Disrepair?

If you are a council or housing association tenant (social housing), there are very strict legal requirements to ensure your landlord keeps your property in a good state of repair.

If you have complained to your landlord and they have failed to repair the property, we can help get the repairs completed. Not only will they be legally obliged to carry out the works, but they will also have to pay compensation to you. Housing Disrepair may have also affected your health, find out more here.

From day 1 you will be speaking with our Solicitors who will take your instructions. We then work alongside local, qualified surveyors to get your repairs completed and get compensation from your landlord.
