LEGAL ADVICE FOR TENANTS

If you are a tenant or leaseholder and your landlord has failed to carry out repairs which you have already made them aware of, you are likely to be able to ask the court to award you an order for your landlord to complete the repairs, compensation, and payment of your legal costs.

There are a lot of different factors determining how much compensation you will be awarded and our experienced Solicitor will be able to advise you on this.

COMPENSATION FOR LOST ITEMS:

If your belongings have been damaged as a result of disrepair, for example water damaged by a leak, or you have been put to extra expense, for example having to pay higher heating bills due to draughty windows, you will also be compensated for this loss.

It is helpful if you have proof that you had and then lost the items for example in the form of receipts and photographs as this will often determine the amount you will receive.

WHAT COMPENSATION FOR "PAIN, SUFFERING AND LOSS OF AMENITY":

Due to the inconvenience and distress that can be caused by having to live in a property in disrepair or by having to leave your home as a result of the disrepair, you are entitled to be compensated for this. 

If you are a tenant this will be calculated in relation to your rent. Alternatively, if you are a leaseholder, it would be calculated on the market rent for your property if you were to let this out to an assured shorthold tenant.  You essentially will receive a percentage of your rent back for the period in which you have had to live with disrepair. You can still claim this even if someone else pays your rent, such as the Local Council under housing benefit.
