Ideally, if you rent housing in the UK the relationship you have with your landlord will be a good one, and you will enjoy a tenancy that provides you with everything you are paying for. However, such scenarios are not always the case. As experienced housing solicitors, the team at Pearl Lemon legal knows that legal issues between landlords and tenants are far more common than they should be.
Among the many things for which tenants might sue landlords are wet and cold dwellings. If your landlord fails to do necessary repairs or maintenance, you may also file a lawsuit against them, and if necessary repairs are not made, an injunction may be imposed. Many consumers look to landlords for reimbursement for mould.
Around 2.5 million individuals in the UK are said to reside in rented homes that are unfit for human habitation, according to the charity Shelter.
