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.

As a tenant, you have a right to live in a property that is safe and suitable to live in. If you have repairs that need carrying out in your home that make it unsafe or inconvenient to live in, then you have ongoing disrepair.
You may be entitled to compensation if your landlord has neglected essential repairs to the property, resulting in problems with daily living or health.
