Make a housing repair claim today

A housing disrepair claim is a legal process that is enacted by a tenant against a landlord for failure to act on a problem with a property that poses a potential danger to the tenant’s health and safety. Landlords have a legal duty of care to maintain the interior, exterior and structure of any property they rent out. Any issues to the property (faulty heating, leaking roofs, damp and mould or vermin etc.) that is reported by a tenant, should be fixed within a reasonable amount of time.


Tenants can make housing disrepair claims against their landlord if they fail to provide a safe living environment. MJW Law can advise on whether you are entitled to make a housing disrepair claim due to a personal injury sustained through inadequate housing standards.
