A housing disrepair claim can be filed against any homeowner who has experienced a breach of his or her property. The following are the two sorts of compensation that you might receive: general damages and special damages.
The rent you have paid during the time your property was in disrepair can be used as the basis for your compensation claim. You will be awarded a percentage of your rent that reflects the severity of the disrepair.
The percentage you receive is determined on how badly the house was damaged. You would be compensated 100 percent if the property was entirely uninhabitable. However, this happens rarely and most claims fall between 25% and 50% of your monthly rent payment.
Yes, Landlords are frequently tasked with repairing rising damp. This is due to a presumed condition in your tenancy agreement, which states that the landlord is responsible for maintaining the exterior and structure of your home.
