Frequently Asked Questions

How long is the claim process?

In most cases, a letter from our team will result in property repairs being completed by your landlord. However, if the case does need to go to court it could take between 9 and 12 months to obtain the compensation. Our group of housing solicitors will inform you how long your claim should take at the beginning of your case.

Will I need to pay anything upfront to file a claim?

No. All of the claims that DisrepairClaim.co.uk panel take on are brought forward on a No Win, No Fee basis. This means you don’t need to pay anything to us upfront, and will only need to pay our panel a fee if your claim is successful. Our panel of solicitors are happy to discuss this in more depth.

Is there a chance I might get evicted?

There are laws that protect Social and Council Housing tenants from being evicted for starting a compensation claim against a landlord. If you ensure you are not in arrears, you are protected from being evicted, even if you bring forward a claim.

Private tenants have fewer legal protections, and a landlord can serve you a Section 21 Eviction notice. There are numerous campaigns to end this, and our experts can advise you if you believe your private landlord may look to evict you. There are, however, legal protections against “revenge evictions”, and your landlord needs to go through a proper process by law. We can assist you if your landlord does attempt to evict you.

If the council serves your landlord with an improvement or emergency remedial action notice, you are safe from a valid Section 21 eviction notice for the next six months after.

How do I know if I am eligible to make a claim?

If you’re a Private Tenant, Housing Association or Council tenant living in a property with any of the disrepair issues listed above, then there is a good chance that you are eligible for compensation. If you have informed your landlord and they have not carried out the repairs, you should get in touch as soon as possible. Fill out our short enquiry form now to check if you are eligible.

How much compensation can I receive?

Your compensation will be calculated based on the length of time the property has been in disrepair, how many people it has affected and how severe the disrepair is. Each case is completely different and will be valued accordingly. We will also look at medical reports and any belongings that have been ruined due to the disrepair.

Can I claim against a private landlord?

Yes, you have the same rights as anyone else and can make a claim.

Do I still need to pay my rent if I am claiming?

Yes, you must pay your full rent. If you stop paying your rent, then it will give your landlord the ability to make a counterclaim against you for a breach of your Tenancy Agreement.

Can I claim if I have moved out of the property?

No, unfortunately not. You must be living in the property.
