Have you reported any property repairs which are still outstanding?
Are you a social housing tenant? Have you reported any property repairs which are still outstanding?
Social housing landlords have to follow certain rules on repairs and maintenance laid down in the Regulator of Social Housing, failure to meet these standards could result in you the tenant being awarded a successful compensation claim against your social housing landlord.
To respond to your needs, your social housing landlords must have in place a repairs and maintenance service agreement and aim to get the work done right the first time to an agreed timescale.
In March 2019, the Homes (Fitness for Human Habitation) Act came into force in which made it the responsibility of all social housing landlords to ensure that their properties are kept in a habitable manner and that their tenants are safe from anything that could cause them serious harm.
