Tenant & Landlord Claim
If you are living in a Council House or in a privately rented house or flat it is likely that you are a tenant. If you are a tenant your Landlord has a duty of care towards you. If you suffer injury you may be able to make a claim against landlord also known as a tenant injury claim.
You Can Claim Against Landlord if They Have Failed to Carry Out Repairs?
The Landlord and Tenant Act 1985 states that there is an obligation on the Landlord to keep the structure and exterior of a house or flat in good repair. This covers things like:
- Remedying a defective damp proof course
- Repairing brickwork
- Eliminating dry rot and replacing the affected joists
- Renewing crumbling plaster
- Replacing a broken window
- Renewing burst or defective water pipes
You may be able to make a landlord claim if your landlord has failed to repair the Property. To make a tenant accident claim you need to contact a tenant accident Solicitor.
Tripping and Slipping hazards and General Accidents
Each year a huge number of people are injured at home due to the negligence of their landlords.
