The law imposes strict requirements on all landlords, including social housing associations and local authorities, to make sure that their property is kept in a good state of repair, such as:
- Dealing with dampness and/or mould problems within the property
- Fixing any problems with the boiler/heating system
- Issues with the structure of the building, including drains, gutters, roofs, foundations, brickwork, windows and external pipes
- Keeping the water, gas, electricity and sanitation including basins, sinks, baths and toilets in proper working order
A housing disrepair claim will force your landlord, council or housing association to carry out the repairs needed, and where appropriate, entitling you to claim compensation for any losses you may have suffered.
