Six Town Housing disrepair complaints
Legally, if you rent your home from Six Town Housing, both you and your landlord are required to ensure that the property is kept up to a suitable standard of living.
These standards include:
- Working sanitation – including full access to working sinks and baths, flushing toilets, baths and unblocked drains
- A structurally safe property
- Access to heating and hot water
- A home that is free from damp, mould and vermin
- Gas and electricity
This means that, if Six Town Housing have failed to deal with any damage to the structure of your home, or have left you without access to flushing toilets or hot water, you may be able to claim against them with the help of a housing disrepair solicitor. Poor quality living conditions are not only inconvenient, but may be detrimental to yours and your family’s health. This is especially concerning when it comes to issues such as mould or rising damp around children, or anyone with respiratory conditions.
At CEL Solicitors, our team of expert solicitors specialise in dealing with social housing complaints, and are passionate about fighting for everyone’s right to live in a well-maina=tained and safe property.
