If you live in rented housing, you have a legal right to ensure that the living conditions are kept in a state of good repair. However, it is a fact that a lot of rented property, particularly those run by Councils and Housing Association are not kept to adequate standards. For example, properties may suffer from rising or penetrating damp, caused from problems with the building work on the property. This not only leads to unsightly parts of your home, but can also lead to health problems, particularly in small children. If this sounds familiar, and you have reported the issues to your landlord but they have not done anything about it, you may have a claim against them for the repairs and compensation.
Middleton Solicitors run such claims on a no win, no fee basis; if your claim is unsuccessful, you will not be left with any fees to pay, meaning there is no risk to you. Also, we do not take any fees upfront meaning that if we choose not to proceed with your claim following our initial review, you will not have lost anything.
