Social Housing disrepair issues have come into the spotlight recently after a child died from exposure to damp and mould. There social landlord failed to do anything about these issues after numerous complaints. Since these issues have gathered national attention. We have had over a 200% increase to the traffic to our website from social housing tenants looking to seek help and possibly make a housing disrepair claim for their own unresolved disrepair issues. It is important to note that making a housing disrepair claim is a last resort. You should go through your social landlords correct complaints procedure before seeking legal assistance to get your home repaired and compensation.
Over the last several years we have helped council and housing association tenants get justice for the issues they have faced. Some of the tenants we have spoken to have not only waited months but years for work to be carried out to their home. No tenant should suffer at the hands of their landlord and put themselves and their families at risk
We have made it our mission from the outset to hold rogue landlords accountable for their actions or in this case inaction. As a tenant you shouldn’t be scared of raising a complaint against your landlord to get work carried out to your home within a reasonable time scale.
If you wish to see if we can help possibly make a housing disrepair claim against your council/ housing association and get your home repaired and compensation for being neglected. Please go to http://www.housingdisrepairadvice.org/contact
