For years Councils and Housing Associations have been leaving tenants in disgusting, inhabitable conditions. Resulting in not just inconvenience but damage to property and unbelievably injuries and damage to health!!
Amazingly it’s taken a 2018 Act for Housing Associations and Local Councils to be held accountable and finally move power to you, the tenant. Homes (Fitness for Human Habitation) Act 2018 which came into force March 2019, means housingdisrepairclaim.co.uk can help tenants claim what they deserve.
Shockingly tenants have been left to live in some terrible living conditions.
HAVE YOU OR YOUR FAMILY BEEN LEFT IN ANY OF THESE 6 WORST LIVING CONDITIONS BY YOUR COUNCIL OR HOUSING ASSOCIATION
6. Roof, Gutters and Windows
Often neglected due to costs of repairs, your windows, roof and guttering are vital components to keeping your house dry, warm and safe from the elements. Disrepair left to any one of these can cause catastrophic damage to the property and your possessions.
5. Boiler and Electrics
It is a major responsibility for your Housing Association or Council landlord to have electrics and gas boilers regularly inspected to make sure these are safe and up to purpose. Shockingly tenants have been left with dangerous wiring and condemned boilers so dangerous they have resulted in fatalities due to negligence.
4. Flooding and Leaks
From a small leak to raw sewage flowing into your property. The damage can take its toll, especially if this is a repeated event, damaging your property and increasing insurance premiums.
3. Damp and Mould
A spot of damp or mould could be seen as a small inconvenience but the damage to property and health can be massive. This form of housing disrepair can spread through your property. Disgustingly some landlords have left whole families to live in just one room due to untreated damp and mould causing chest and breathing problems.
2. Rodent and Pest Infestation
Did you know rodents communicate, leave trails to show dominance and mark food with urine? Enough to put a shiver through the spine of even the biggest pet lovers!! An infestation of rodents and pets can be a worry to anyone. Councils and Housing Associations have a responsibility to not just your property but the surrounding areas.
1. Structure Defects
This could be a ticking tomb bomb for your property. Especially in Council and Housing Association new builds, the structural integrity and quality of the build has come more and more into question with subsidence and structural defects recorded up and down the country. From being left to live in fear, made homeless and even injured, no one should have to live like this.
