Dealing With Council House Disrepair

If you are living in a council property and it is in a state of disrepair you could be eligible to make a housing disrepair claim.

Council house disrepair can include a number of different problems in a property and it is the landlord’s duty to fix all repairs and to make sure the home is safe to live in. Failure to do this can result in a housing disrepair claim being made. We spend a lot of time in our homes and therefore it is unsurprising that housing disrepair can have a large effect on our quality of living, as well as causing stress and upset.

When you first notice disrepair in your council house it is important you inform your landlord and allow them time to make the repairs; it is suggested to allow them 21 days and if the repairs are not made, take further action. If the repairs are not made the next step is to contact specialist housing disrepair solicitors.
