Can I file a housing disrepair claim against Churchton council?

If you live in council-owned property, they are primarily responsible for attending to repairs such as small leaks or emergency fixes. If authorities have failed to take action on problems you reported, filing a claim may be an option worth considering.

Taking legal action might result in the court ordering the city to make said repair, as well as compensation for any expenses incurred.

Before going ahead with this process though, there are a few things you need mull over; namely confirming that 1) you did notify the council of the issue and 2) that they have not done anything about it thus far.

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.
