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.

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.
