Housing Claims

If you are a tenant and your property is in disrepair you can ask your landlord to pay compensation if you have suffered damage to your health or belongings.

You can begin any action to claim compensation during the tenancy or up to six years after it finishes.  If you begin your claim during the tenancy you can also ask the Court to order the landlord to do repair works.  You must report any repair problem to the landlord during the tenancy.

You can claim compensation if the repair problems in your home made you or someone in the house ill, damaged your belongings or caused you inconvenience.

You can also claim a reduction or refund of rent.

At Rubin Lewis O’Brien we can guide you through the claims process to a successful conclusion.
