London Social Housing Compensates Tenant £1,500 For Housing Disrepair

London Social Housing Compensates Tenant £1,500 For Housing Disrepair

Angelus Law were instructed by a 63 year old male tenant of a social housing landlord in London.  Located in the Borough of Newham our client had been reporting disrepair issues to his landlord since 2017, but his pleas were ignored on repeated occasions.

The disrepair consisted of damp and mould throughout the property, as well as defective windows.  This included the tenants living room, bathroom and bedrooms.  Clearly, as a result of these living conditions, this caused great inconvenience and distress to the tenant.

Despite continually reporting ongoing disrepair in the property to their Landlord, the tenant was ignored and no works were ever completed to our clients ground floor flat.

The tenant approached Angelus Law for help.  It was within the period of three months that Angelus Law had sent a formal letter to the Landlord and arranged for the tenant’s property to be inspected by a qualified surveyor.

Whilst negotiations then ensued, Angelus Law advised the tenant to issue court proceedings to ensure that the optimum outcome was achieved.  Within 4 months of court proceedings being issued, Angelus Law settled the claim out of court, achieving compensation for the sum of £1,500.00 for the tenant and for all the works suggested by the tenant’s surveyor to be completed to the property.



My Housing Association have ignored the problems in my property for years. When Angelus Law got involved they ended up getting all the problems fixed for free and I received thousands in compensation.

When I moved into my house 4 years ago, it turns out my landlord didn’t protect my deposit until 2 months after I had moved in. Angelus Law recovered 3 times the amount of the deposit as compensation for me.

I thought I had lost every chance of a happy retirement when my SIPP collapsed. My Financial Advisor had told me my money would be safe. Angelus recovered my full investment plus interest.
