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.

In basic terms, housing deterioration occurs when the condition of a rented home or flat has deteriorated or changed negatively in comparison to how it was when you moved in.
If your landlord fails to carry out repair work within a reasonable amount of time, or if your property is uninhabitable due to poor upkeep, you may be entitled to compensation. This might be in the form of a rent reduction or a payment.
