Making a Housing Disrepair Claim
If your landlord consistently neglects their responsibility to address disrepair issues, you may have the grounds to make a housing disrepair claim. Here’s a brief overview of the process:
Seek Legal Advice: Consult with a solicitor or a housing disrepair claims specialist to evaluate the validity of your claim.
Evidence Gathering: Gather all relevant evidence, such as photographs, communication records, and inspection reports, to support your claim.
Letter of Claim: Your solicitor will send a formal letter of claim to your landlord, outlining the issues, the harm or inconvenience caused, and the compensation sought.
Negotiation: In many cases, landlords will respond positively to the letter of claim, and negotiations will begin to settle the matter without going to court.
Court Action: If negotiations fail, your solicitor may advise you to take legal action in court to seek compensation for the disrepair issues.
