Can I file a housing disrepair claim against Harestanes council?

If you live in a city-owned home, they are primarily responsible for minor leaks and emergency repairs. If authorities have failed to address the issues you reported, claiming may be a worthwhile option to explore. Taking legal action may result in the court forcing the city to perform the necessary repair as well as compensation for any associated costs.

There are a few things to think about before proceeding with this procedure, one of which is to ensure that you notified the council of the problem and that they have not done anything about it yet.

Types of Damages

The two types of compensation available in a Housing Disrepair Claim are general damages and special damages. The rent you paid while your house was being neglected may be used as the basis for your claim. A percentage of your rent will be determined based on the degree of disrepair.

The actual percentage you receive depends on how uninhabitable the property was. If the property was completely uninhabitable, you would be compensated 100%. However, this is very rare and most claims range between 25% and 50% of the rent you paid.
