While many housing disrepair claims against landlords will naturally revolve around the state of living in terms of the interior of a rented property, there can also be scenarios where a claim can be brought for overgrown vegetation on the exterior.
Given that UK law states that landlords are obliged to make certain repairs to a property without passing on the cost of any repair work to tenants, issues with plumbing and drainage are among the most important to have fixed.
A significant part of this is making sure all fixtures and fittings in the interior won’t cause you or those you live with significant harm, with unsafe flooring and stairs a potential hazard requiring urgent attention – especially if you live with children or elderly relatives.
If you are a tenant living in a housing association, council house or private rented property, you might be wondering whether you can claim against your landlord for rotting window frames.
There are probably fewer more distressing sights or sounds as a tenant in a rented property than seeing a mouse or rat scurrying through rooms in your house, or scratch against cavity walls while you’re trying to sleep.
When living as a tenant in a private rented property, housing association, or council house, damaged or worn brickwork is a fairly common issue that can need resolving.
