Housing Law & Tenants’ Rights Lawyers Serving Manchester
Housing Disrepair Cases
If you rent your home and it is in a state of disrepair and your landlord, housing association or local authority is not taking corrective action after being notified of the issue, then our housing disrepair team can help you take action. We can ensure that adequate repairs are carried out and you receive and compensation that is due to you.
In some cases, the negligence of your landlord in failing to repair damage can cause further issues. For example, if your personal property was damaged by a water leak you may be entitled to compensation to reimburse you for your ruined possessions.
Furthermore, you may also be eligible to claim compensation if your landlord or property owner’s negligence has caused you injury, health problems or exacerbated existing health problems. For example, if mould in your home has induced or worsened a respiratory illness, then your landlord could well be held liable for your health condition.
Cavity Wall Insulation Claims
If you are experiencing damp, mould and mildew growth, higher than expected heating bills, aggravated health complaints or damaged brickwork, this could well be the result of being mis-sold or the incorrect installation of cavity wall insulation. Our expert surveyors can help identify the cause of the deterioration in your home, even if you were not the person who paid for the installation.
Cavity wall insulation was installed in many homes throughout the United Kingdom, despite it being largely ineffective and often causing structural problems for buildings. We are seeing an increasing number of homeowners now come forward after the insulation that was fitted to their property years ago has started to cause serious and expensive problems.
