Take a look at the graph above; we can see that in the UK, housing disrepair is a very real problem that many people have to live with. To answer the question, how much is a claim for housing disrepair worth for damage belongings? This section should help answer it. No housing disrepair compensation guide would be complete without listing the common types of property that could be claimed for through housing disrepair legal claims. Typical types of property you could claim for includes, but is not limited to:

  • Soft furnishings such as bed linen, cushions, curtains and carpets.
  • Stuffed furniture such as a sofa or armchairs.
  • Electrical equipment that has been damaged by water.
  • Expensive, irreplaceable items such as paintings or prints.
  • Children’s toys, especially if they have been harmed by mould.

These types of items are typical of those that we see people successfully claim for in housing disrepair compensation. Call Legal Expert on the number at the end of this guide to find out more about how we can help you claim for them too.

Calculating Housing Disrepair Damages For Health

When it comes to claims for personal injury and illness, you could use a disrepair calculator to try and get a rough idea of how much you might claim for health problems caused by housing disrepair. A better way would be to contact a personal injury solicitor or social housing solicitors who would be able to give you a much more accurate estimate.

Housing disrepair can cause physical injuries, though accidents such as slip, trips or falls. It can also cause illnesses through conditions such as damp or mould. If you can prove that the injury or illness was caused by your home being in a state of disrepair, then there will exist a valid reason to make a compensation claim. Later in this guide, we will list all of the common types of damages you might claim for health-related problems.

Legal Expert is an experienced team of solicitors who can help you make a personal injury claim against your landlord. Call us on the telephone number at the end of this guide to find out how.

Calculating Housing Disrepair Damages For Inconvenience

To answer the question, how much compensation for housing disrepair for the inconvenience caused to you and your family? You could once again, use a housing disrepair calculator which would give you a rough idea of how much you might receive for housing compensation claims. Contacting a solicitor would be a better idea, as they would be able to give you a much more accurate estimate.

If the state of disrepair that your home is in has stopped you using it properly, for example, a lack of heating has meant you have had to stop using additional rooms that don’t have stand alone heaters, then you could claim for this inconvenience.

The amount of compensation you can claim will be directly linked to the level of inconvenience that living in a badly repaired home has caused you. In the most serious cases, this would mean claiming back the cost of short-term accommodation due to having to leave your home temporarily until it has been repaired properly.

Legal Expert can help you to claim for the inconvenience of having to live in a house that is in a state of repair from your landlord. Call us on the telephone number that you will find down in the last section of this guide to find out how.

Calculating Housing Disrepair Damages For Abatement Of Rent

Aside from making a compensation claim for a lump sum as a personal injury claim, or for housing disrepair damages for your belongings that have been damaged, you may be able to negotiate a lowering of your rent. Any provision made by rent abatement does not fall into the housing disrepair small claims limit.

The actual reduction in your rent will be driven by just how much of your home you have not been able to use, and how serious the disrepair is. Again, in some cases, this abatement of rent could be used to make up for having to live in short-term accommodation while your home is repaired. Many people successfully negotiate with their landlord without needing legal representation for the lowering of their rent to compensate them for the state of disrepair their home is in. However, in order to get the lowest rate of rent possible, a solicitor would be able to apply more leverage to your landlord. Put simply; it is a good deal for a landlord to offer a lowering of the rent, rather than face a full compensation claim that could go to court.

If you would like to negotiate a reduction in your rent due to housing disrepair with your landlord, Legal Expert may be able to help you with this. Please call us on the telephone number that you will find down in the final section of this guide to learn how we can assist you with negotiating with your landlord.

What Can Housing Disrepair Damages Include?

Your housing association may have a process in place for claiming compensation for damage to your property or health due to housing disrepair. However, it is important to note that this kind of housing association compensation policy is superseded by UK law. Your housing association may have tried to convince you that under your rental agreement, your ability to claim compensation is limited. This is simply not true, you have the same rights as everyone in the UK, regardless of the rental agreement you have signed. Typically, if your health has been affected, you could claim damages such as these below as part of your overall settlement for housing disrepair:

Special Damages – Financial and Ad-Hoc Losses

Under the category of special damages, we include all of the non-physical losses attached to the personal injury claim. So, this is primarily financial losses, such as:

  • Travel costs – if you have had to pay to travel to a hospital or clinic to have your injury or illness treated, or you have had to travel to deal with the claim itself, such as visiting your solicitor.
  • Medical fees – if you have had to pay for any of the treatment for your injury or illness, or you have had to pay other medical expenses such as prescription charges.
  • Care costs – if you have had to employ home help around your house due to your injury or illness dilapidating you, or you have had to hire in nursing help.
  • Historical loss of earnings – if due to your illness or injury you have had to take time off work, and this has meant you lost out on pay.
  • Loss of future prospects – if due to your illness or injury your work prospects will be lessened in the future, you could claim for this loss.

General Damages – Physical Hardship and Suffering

Under the category of general damages, we include all of the physical suffering attached to the personal injury claim, such as:

  • Pain and suffering – this will cover the initial injury or illness, such as the pain of being in an accident which broke a bone, and also the pain of the initial treatment, such as having that broken bone set.
  • Psychological injury – if your illness or injury has led to you developing serious psychological conditions such as PTSD, depression or anxiety.
  • Long-term rehabilitation and recovery – if your recovery from your illness or injury is long and painful, then there could be a provision to compensate you for this pain and suffering.
  • Permanent disability – if your illness or injury has left you with a permanent disability which will lower the quality of your life you can claim for this.
