13 disrepair issues

15 December 2023

The case:

Our client had been living in a property for a period of 6 years.

During that time, she had reported 13 separate issues of disrepair in her home from cracked external brickwork, internal ceiling and wall cracks in numerous rooms, loose floorboards on the landing and bedrooms, the presence of mould in the bedrooms, faulty drainage in the kitchen and a rodent infestation. Asbestos was also present throughout the downstairs of the property in the ceilings.

Despite reporting the many instances of disrepair on the property to the landlord and local authority, the issues continued without repair which had a detrimental impact on our client’s mental health and was a contributing factor to the breakdown of her marriage.

How we helped: 

We successfully recovered £2,500 in compensation for our client, along with payment of fees from the defendant and repairs are underway to rectify the issues in the property.

Our client stated “The staff are all lovely and understanding and empathetic towards your situation they have gone above and beyond for me for my case and even retrieved compensation for me. It wasn’t about the compensation it was about getting the result I needed for myself and my family they kept me up to date every step of the way and everything was straight forward and easy to correspond.  I would definitely recommend this company and I whole heartedly thank you all for your help kindness and support I can now try and move forward and leave all these bad memories behind”.
