Compensation for repair delays and Tenant Rights
As well as enforcing your Tenant Rights we can also get compensation for you. If your landlord fails to repair the property in a reasonable time then you can be compensated for the upset, inconvenience and any losses caused by damp or other damage due to disrepair. You have the same rights regardless of whether you receive housing benefit or pay rent directly. The landlord cannot refuse to repair or suggest the tenant has no rights to repair where your tenancy is subject to the Landlord and Tenant Act. Most Council, Housing Association and other tenants have full rights under the act. The landlord’s excuses or delays are a breach of the Act.
