What Are Housing Disrepair Claims?
Disrepair is when your home is in need of a repair. If you are a tenant, then your landlord will be responsible for dealing with most repairs.
You do not need to suffer in silence if you have notified your Landlord about a repair issue and you believe they are doing nothing about it.
Our expert solicitors will carefully assess your case based on the information and evidence which you provide, and then advise you on the best way forward in simple, easy to understand language.
What Are The Landlords Responsibilities?
The Tenancy Agreement
Your tenancy agreement is a contract between you and the landlord. You both have some rights and responsibilities under this agreement.
The Express Terms
If the tenancy agreement sets out the landlord’s obligations to carry out the repairs, this is called an express term. An express term is a term which is in writing. If the landlord’s obligations to carry out the repairs are not in writing then you will need to rely on things said and done, which sometimes can be very difficult to prove.
The Implied Terms
An implied term is something which can be read into a tenancy agreement even when it is not in writing.
The Law implies a term into your tenancy agreement making your landlord responsible to carry out the basic repairs.
It means your landlord is responsible for keeping in repair:
. the structure and exterior of your home, example, the walls, roof, foundations, drains, guttering, and external pipes, windows and external doors
. basins, sinks, baths, toilets and their pipework
. water and gas pipes, electrical wiring, water tanks, boilers, radiators, gas fires, fitted electrical fires or fitted heaters
Your landlord must repair the above and they cannot pass the cost of any repair work to you. It is the landlord’s RESPONSIBILITY.
Telling Your Landlord About The Repairs
You must notify your landlord about the repair and this must be done in writing so you have the evidence that your landlord knew about the problem.
