Disrepair Claims

Many landlords wait until the end of a tenancy to raise the issue of disrepair with their tenant. By this time, however, the landlord/tenant relationship has usually irretrievably broken down and the chances of solving the situation amicably is minute.

However, if the lines of communication are opened early enough, many issues can be resolved without the need to resort to litigation.

We deal with many types of disrepair claims from facilitating annual chimney inspections to general repair and maintenance work through to relocating the tenant to suitable alternative accommodation.

We act for either the landlord or the tenant and due to the nature of this work and working for both sides, we are able to take a clear and constructive look at the issues involved and give the best advice available.

The fact that we have good working relationships with many of the local housing departments and environmental health departments can assist both landlords and tenants through what can be a stressful time.

Of course, if the issues are so bad and cannot be resolved through open communication, we can also assist either party through the mediation process, which involves all parties sitting down together and thrashing out their differences before a professional, independent mediator, resulting in a binding agreement between them.

If all else fails, our property litigation team can guide either the landlord through the process of bringing a disrepair claim through the County Court or assisting the tenant in the defence of an action through the County Court.
