Tenant’s Pleas For Repairs Finally Resolved After 4 Years

Tenant’s Pleas For Repairs Finally Resolved After 4 Years

Angelus Law were instructed by a tenant of a Social Landlord after reporting disrepair to their Landlord since 2017. 

The disrepair consisted of damp and mould throughout the property, including the tenant’s living room, kitchen and bathroom.  The tenant had been reporting these issues for over two years to her Landlord, without success.  Living in such conditions caused the tenant great distress and inconvenience.

 As a result of the Landlord failing to take any steps to rectify the disrepair, despite repeated reporting by the tenant, Angelus Law were instructed by the tenant to pursue a claim for repair works to be carried out and damages.

 Within a month of being instructed, 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, the Defendant maintained a denial of liability.  However, Angelus Law successfully managed to settle the tenant’s case without the need for court proceedings.

 Compensation in the sum of £1000.00, together with works to be completed to the tenant’s property were agreed with the Landlord.”

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.
