Can I claim housing disrepair against Burnham Thorpe council?

If you live in a property owned by the council, they are mostly responsible for repairs such as minor leaks or emergency repairs. If authorities have neglected to act on problems you reported, filing a claim might be an option.

Making a claim might result in the court ordering the city to make a repair, as well as compensation for expenses incurred.

However, there are a few things to think about before filing a complaint against the council. You must first confirm that you notified the council of the issue and that they have not dealt with it.

We had been waiting for 12 months for the damp to be repaired by the council but got nowhere. We were told by a friend that this company could help and within 6 months we received compensation for damages & all the damp and mould was removed.

How much money can you get for housing association disrepair in Burnham Thorpe?

Types of Damages

When you file a Housing Disrepair Claim, you may be compensated with general or special damages. If your rent was paid while your house was being neglected, that amount may serve as the foundation for your claim. A percentage of what you paid in rent will be decided based on the severity of the disrepair.

The percentage of your rent you receive back largely depends on how inhabitable the property was. Inhabitability is rare, and most claims only result in 25%-50% of the rent you paid, whereas complete uninhabitability would grant you a 100% return.

What are housing disrepair claims? 

If a tenant reports problems with their housing to their landlord, they can make what is called a housing disrepair claim. The landlord must be given time to fix the issues before the tenant can file for compensation, but if repairs are not made in a timely manner, then the housing disrepair claim can be filed.

If you reside in a council home, social housing, or a housing association property, your landlord is required by law to ensure that your living quarters are safe and functional. It is the responsibility of the landlord to provide you with a decent standard of living if your house degrades or necessitates improvements so that it may be lived in safely and comfortably.

If a property is in disrepair, this means that it requires repairs for it to be determined safe and suitable to live in. This typically applies to rented homes and any other type of rented accommodation.
