Housing Disrepair

A tenant living in a residential property should not have to tolerate conditions of disrepair and inconvenience at their rented property and are entitled to have essential repairs carried out and compensation.

Landlords should be notified of the disrepair and must not delay unreasonably in carry out works. The amount of compensation for inconvenience can be considerable and this can include compensation for respiratory symptoms attributable to actionable dampness.

Case Example:

The team at Oliver Fisher are specialists in Housing Disrepair claims. Our Arman Khosravi recently acted Where (from 2009) a tenant of a purpose built block of flats complained about water penetration and subsidence. Deputy District Judge Sofaer awarded general damages in the amount of £10,180.84. Applying the uplift of 10 per cent, the award for general damages was increased to £11,198.92.

Oliver Fisher has helped hundreds of clients successfully obtain repairs and much more substantial awards of compensation.
