What is Housing Disrepair?
If you rent your home, then your landlord has a legal duty to maintain your property and ensure that it is kept in a reasonable and safe condition. Your landlord must ensure that your home is kept in good structural condition and must meet health and safety standards.
If you have had issues with your property, then you must inform your landlord and allow them the opportunity to take steps to make the necessary repairs. However, if your landlord ignores or refuses your complaints then you may be entitled to make a claim for housing disrepair.
