Disrepair

Tenants who do not have long leases are owed a duty of repair of specific matters such as the structure and exterior as well as facilities for sanitation, hot water and heating. On 20 March 2019 the Home (Fitness for Human Habitation) Act 2018 comes into force and give tenants additional protection so that every home must be fit for human habitation. The county court can now make an order for repairs and give damages for breach of this Act.

The geographical reach of our network of specialist barristers is such that, subject to availability, we can offer representation at every Tribunal and court in England, Scotland and Wales.
