My flat was repaired in time for my child’s birth and I received rent refunds and compensation. The team were very helpful and understanding of my dangerous situation.
We had been waiting for 12 months for the damp to be repaired by the council but got nowhere. We were told by a friend that this company could help and within 6 months we received compensation for damages & all the damp and mould was removed.

Housing disrepair claims occur when a property is in need of repair in order to be safe and suitable for tenants, but the landlord refuses to carry out the repairs.
If your landlord is failing to carry out work on your home, within a reasonable amount of time, a claim can made to force your landlord to carry out the repairs and potentially recover you compensation.
The law says you are entitled to live in a safe space and if you have already reported issues to your landlord which they have failed to rectify, we can force them complete the work and also win compensation for you.
If living in an unsafe property has affected your physical or mental health you may also be able to claim for that too. Stress can cause sleepless nights, anxiety and depression and if your housing repair problems have caused you to have time off work, incur medical bills or even personal injury, these are common grounds for housing disrepair compensation.
