MOULD / HEALTH WARNINGS
Living with damp and mould is always distressing. It can make your home and clothing smell and cause respiratory illness in vulnerable people especially young children. It is very common for Landlords claim that mould is caused by condensation because of the tenants failing to open windows or keep the heating on. That is not always the case. Specialist surveyors instructed by us can advise if it is and if you have a right to claim. If you do not accept that it is your lifestyle causing the damp or mould, get in touch with us now.

BLOCKED DRAIN / GUTTERING
This can lead to flooding and penetrating damp coming through the walls into your home. Sometimes this can be raw effluent. Your landlord has responsibility to put right any structural defects which includes fixing any blocked drains and guttering that can cause penetrating damp and damage to the internal plaster.
BOILER / RADIATOR ISSUES
If the property came installed with a boiler and central heating, it is your landlord’s responsibility to make sure that is in a safe working order, which provides adequate heating and hot water. You don’t have to live in a cold damp home. The law is there to ensure that landlords fulfil their responsibility.
DEFECTIVE / ROTTEN WINDOWS
Faulty windows or failed double glazing can allow water to penetrate your home. They can also cause cold spots leading to condensation. It can also lead to excessive heat loss. These can make life unpleasant and affect your health. It is your landlord’s responsibility to fix defective windows. If they don’t then you could have a claim.
This is often a sign of penetrating or rising damp. This usually if water has entered your home through the faulty brickwork or external wall. The plaster is brittle and crumble to touch. If this has happened to your home, your landlord may have the responsibility to repair both the inside plasterwork and repair the external brickwork to prevent it happening again.
If the pathway, driveway or outside yard to your home is cracked, your landlord has a responsibility to make it is safe for you, your family and any guests you may have visiting.
Your landlord must make sure that the electricity in your home is safe. Any exposed wires, damaged outlets can pose a serious risk. If your electrics are dangerous, you may be able to take emergency court action to compel your landlord to act.

Defective brickwork in your rental home could cause damp and damage to internal walls and furnishing. Your landlord has a duty to repair any cracked or defective brickwork to your home.
An infested home can pose health risks. Vermin can contaminate food and damage your belongings. Your landlord has a responsibility to make sure that your home is vermin free when you move in.

You could be entitled to compensation.

You can claim for damaged items and the cost of any redecoration subject to proof.
If your case is accepted, we will represent you on a ‘No Win No Fee’ basis with the protection of legal expenses insurance, also known as After The Event insurance (“ATE” for short).
Our customers find No Win No Fee arrangement to be the most preferable way of funding their legal claim. You do not need to pay for any upfront costs; and, an ATE policy can guarantee that you will not be charged any costs in the event that you have an unsuccessful claim, provided you have co-operated us. The cost of this insurance policy will be deducted from any compensation awarded to you.
If your claim is successful, then your landlord will contribute to payment of your legal costs. Your lawyer will deduct the cost of the insurance policy; and, an agreed share of any compensation awarded to you up to 30% plus VAT. This is known as a ‘success fee’ and it is broadly intended to reward the law firm for taking on the risk that they might not get paid at all.
*There may be cancellation charges if you cancel your claim after 14 days but before it’s completed. There is no charge if you complete your claim but it is unsuccessful.
