How much does it cost to bring a Housing Disrepair Claim?

We understand that sometimes tenants are worried about making a claim against their landlord. However, as a tenant, you are protected! Your landlord is not allowed to evict you for making a disrepair complaint or claim, and they are legally required to ensure your home is safe and in good repair. We can guide you through the whole process and help you claim the housing disrepair compensation you deserve.

In most cases, we can take on your claim on a no win, no fee basis, meaning that if the claim is not successful, you won’t have to pay a penny in legal fees.

As a tenant, you have rights and you don’t have to suffer unnecessarily. You are entitled to:

  • A structurally sound building that is safe to live in
  • Properly working drains and gutters
  • An adequate heating system
  • Safe access to water, gas and electricity
  • Working sanitation, including basins, sinks, baths and toilets
  • A home free from damp
  • A property free from vermin
