Council Tenant

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.

Helping Sheffield tenants claim for housing disrepair issues

Section 11 of the Landlord and Tenant Act 1985 is a legal provision that requires your landlord to make routine maintenance. Whether or not you have a tenancy agreement, your landlord is required by law to carry out basic repairs.

If you rent your property, your landlord is obliged to make necessary repairs. It can be distressing if your landlord refuses to perform repairs, and we realize that minimum standards of safety are required.
