Has Notting Hill Genesis Housing ignored your Housing Disrepair?

We act regularly for clients who have suffered serious housing disrepair in and around Notting Hill and Kensington.

Recently, our Kensington solicitors acted for a young mother (with a 3 year-old) who’s ceiling had collapsed after several years of saturation from water ingress due to a leak from another flat above also owned by Notting Hill Genesis.

Notting Hill Genesis were slow and did not want to accept liability i.e. that the damp, water ingress, mould and squalid conditions of the property rendered the property uninhabitable and in breach of S.11 of the Landlord & Tenant Act 1985.

Notting Hill Genesis refused to decant / re-house our client who left and applied as a homeless person in another borough. Luckily, she was re-housed (albeit temporarily – but paying a second rent) and found us via the internet.

We quickly exercised our judgement to grant a Conditional Fee Arrangement / No Win no Fee retainer whereupon we set out to ensure that Notting Hill Genesis re-housed our client in suitable alternative accommodation, paid compensation for the inconvenience and distress and relocation costs.

Our client and her daughter are now living in a warm, disrepair free home having been paid the compensation she deserves and her previous rent arrears written off.

Call us now for a no obligation assessment of your case on 0203 219 0145 or email use photos of the disrepair along with a chronology explaining when and how you gave notice of the disrepair?
