Housing disrepair compensation can be claimed by those who are living in properties that are in a state of disrepair. Housing disrepair is the broad term used to describe areas of a property in need of repair such as cracked walls, a faulty boiler, mould, leaks and inadequate living conditions.

In council properties, housing association properties and those that are privately rented it is the responsibility of the landlord to ensure the property is in a good state of repair and is safe to live in.
