Housing Disrepair

The majority of the UK population pays rent to a landlord for accommodation. However, how many tenants are aware of their rights when it comes to housing disrepair claims? 

Landlords are lawfully bound to offer their tenants a duty of care by ensuring the property they are renting is in an adequate, living state. Tenants who are facing unsafe living standards are able pursue disrepair claims against their landlords. In the unfortunate event a tenant experiences a personal injury as a result of housing disrepair and landlord negligence, the tenant is well within their rights to pursue legal action.

Tenant Rescue offers friendly, sympathetic and expert advice on any personal injuries that have occured, due to inadequate housing standards and helps you claim the compensation you deserve.

What Is a Housing Disrepair Claim?

When talking disrepairs, it is important to know the difference between repairs and improvements. If a tenant damages a door frame for example, it is the tenants responsibility to ensure this is replaced and maintained as it was a result of the landlord's neglect. If however, a boiler breaks and there is no hot running water, then the landlord is responsible for the repair.

A landlord is legally responsible by law, to ensure the property meets required Health and Safety standards. If they fail to do so, a tenant can claim against their landlord for any damages and personal injuries that may occur, as a result of the housing disrepair.

Tenants must inform their landlords of any health and safety concerns they have such as a broken boiler or poor sanitation, to enable the landlord to make any said repairs. The time to pursue legal action is when the landlord has been made aware of disrepairs and fails to take the necessary actions to maintain the property.

What our customers are saying

I had a problem with the drainage at my rented property and my walls were riddled with damp. I reported the problem to The Housing Association on 3 occasions over a 2-year period and despite their promises, nobody ever came and did anything to rectify my issues. Thank goodness for Tenant Rescue and their Solicitors who did more in the space of 6 weeks for me and my family. Thank you, guys.

Mr & Mrs Peakes

Bradford - West Yorkshire

Tenant Rescue assisted me with my housing disrepair claim which had been troubling me for a couple of years. Every member of the team that I spoke to worked extremely hard in pushing the repair and were all friendly and helpful. Thanks to all their hard work I received sizeable compensation. I am thrilled with their persistence, perseverance, and the result. I do not know how I could ever thank you. This has truly changed my life.

Mrs Pauline Thornton

Halifax – West Yorkshire

I would highly recommend using Tenant Rescue to aid with making your claim! For over 7 months I had a major roof leakage which my landlord never came to repair, which then caused further damage to my electrics as well as ruining my rooms with damp and mould. I had no idea how to claim and what was required but Tenant Rescue literally came to my rescue. Throughout they kept me up to date during my claim – I will definitely be back again if I ever come across another issue that my landlord isn’t prepared to resolve!

Who Is Responsible for Maintaining Housing?

The tenant is responsible for minor property maintenance, such as repairing a blown light bulb, replacing a broken door handle and keeping the property clean. It is the landlords responsibility to maintain the major parts of a property such as the heating and plumbing systems. 

Housing disrepair claims are best handled by an experienced solicitor due to the fundamental distinctions drawn between what the Tenant is responsible for and what the landlord is responsible for. 

When talking disrepair claims, it is important to know the difference between repairs and improvements. If a tenant damages a door frame for example, it is the tenants responsibility to ensure this is replaced and maintained as it was a result of the landlord's neglect. If however, a boiler breaks and there is no hot running water, then the landlord is responsible for the repair. 

If a tenant takes it upon themselves to make improvements to the property, then the landlord has no responsibility or duty of care for this, as it was not something provided by the landlord.

If a landlord feels that improvements are not necessary to a property, they are within their rights not to agree and can not be forced by a tenant into doing so. For example, if a tenant feels that a single glazed window is not keeping enough noise out or fails to keep the heat in during winter months, the landlord is not obliged to replace the window if the window is in an adequate condition.

To pursue a successful housing disrepair claim, the tenant must prove that the landlord failed to maintain the property's infrastructure and neglected to provide adequate repairs which directly resulted in personal injury and harm.

The Landlord and Tenant Act 1985

The Landlord and Tenant act was introduced in 1985, to help protect tenants against inadequate housing, provided by landlords.
Below highlights the key responsibilities of the landlord which are laid down, by the law:

•  A property must meet fire safety regulations
•  Gas, electricity, water and sanitation must be in working order
•  Central heating and wiring must be working
•  The landlord must provide adequate security for the property
•  External structures, such as gutters, must be kept clean and structurally sound
•  The more recent Homes (Fitness for Human Habitation) Act 2018 also contains the provision   that a property must be free of mould and damp.

If any of the above laws have been broken by a landlord, the tenant is entitled to make claims against them.

What Kind of Personal Injury Can Housing Disrepair Cause?

There are many different types of injuries that can be caused by housing disrepairs that are not visual. A few of the most common claims will involve the following the following:

•  Respiratory diseases caused by mould or damp
•  Physical injuries caused by poor lighting in the home or poor infrastructure (for example, an injury caused by a falling tile or door)
•  Asbestos-related illnesses in older houses
•  Injuries sustained by faulty electrics
•  Injuries sustained due to structural problems inside or outside the house.
•  Injuries can be short term or long term.
•  A tenant could claim for a physical injury caused by a broken window. Equally, a claim could be filed by a person diagnosed with a respiratory illness due to long-term exposure to damp conditions in the property.

There needs to be clear evidence that links the disrepair to the tenant’s health problem. These need to be established and proven during the claim. Personal Injury protocol must be followed, therefore legal advice will be necessary.

How Can Bad Weather Contribute to an Injury?

Bad weather can cause mould and damp to form in a property, therefore it is the landlord's duty to ensure that their property is kept free from these harmful bacteria's. If a landlord chooses to neglect these issues, they are risking personal injury to their tenants.

Damp and mould can cause respiratory illnesses, which in many cases can be quite severe and can lead to claims against the landlord if they failed to prevent mould or damp outbreaks.

What Kind of Personal Injury Can Housing Disrepair Cause?

Landlords have a duty of care to their tenants. If their neglect and lack of repairs lead to a personal injury, then the tenant will be entitled to compensation through a housing disrepair claim.

There are many different types of injury that can be caused by housing disrepair, but a few of the most common claims will involve the following circumstances:

Respiratory diseases caused by mould or damp
Physical injuries caused by poor lighting in the home or poor infrastructure (for example, an injury caused by a falling tile or door)
Asbestos-related illnesses (this can be a problem in older houses)
Injuries sustained by faulty electrics
Injuries sustained due to structural problems inside or outside the house.
Injuries can be short term or long term, so you could claim for a physical injury caused by a broken window. Equally, a claim could be filed by a person diagnosed with a respiratory illness due to long-term damp conditions in the property.

Importantly, there needs to be a clear link between a tenant’s health problem and the disrepair, and these need to be established and proven during the claim. Legal advice will be necessary, as personal injury protocol must be followed.
