Housing Disrepair Experts In Leeds

Is your property is in a bad state of repair, maintained poorly or worse not at all? If you have reported the repair to your landlord, council or housing association and it wasn't satisfactorily repaired in a timely manner you may be able to make a claim against them.

You could be entitled to compensation if your accommodation is not up to standard, and we have many years of experience helping our clients in Leeds and West Yorkshire get the settlements they deserve. We operate on a no-win no-fee basis, meaning if you think you’ve got a case, you’ve got nothing to lose and everything to gain. We can let you know after an initial chat if we think you have a viable case to proceed with.

Get in touch and the first thing we'll do is offer you a free 30 minute consultation for your case. This will help us establish if you legally have a right to compensation and the repairs completed, and from there how to get you the accomodation you deserve.

Landlords have an obligation to keep your property up-to-scratch. If they fail to do so, we will help you to take the required action against them.

Remember, tenants have rights - you don't need to suffer in silence!
