What is a housing disrepair claim for personal injury?
Generally speaking, a housing disrepair claim for personal injury compensation is where you, a family member, or another housemate, has been injured as a result of negligence on behalf of your landlord.
All landlords operate subject to the Landlord and Tenant Act of 1985. This Act sets out a number of rules that landlords must stick to, in order to ensure safe living conditions for their tenants and prevent personal injury.
Under these rules, landlords must:
Repair any broken, or unsafe, doors or windows
Carry out regular electrical checks of the appliances in the property
Carry out pest control if necessary
Re-plaster any damaged or crumbling ceilings or walls
Repair any cracks or damage causing water to enter the property
Repair any broken flooring, tiles, brick work, or roofing
Conduct re-wiring of the property if necessary
If you or anybody else has been injured in the property as a result of negligence on behalf of the landlord, and their failure to conform to these rules, then you may be eligible to make a housing disrepair claim for personal injury. Contact MG Legal’s specialist team of solicitors today for a no-obligation discussion of your potential claim for personal injury.
