Rising Damp

If you're contemplating filing a damp compensation claim against your landlord, you must evaluate critical factors before proceeding. This guide will help you determine whether your circumstances warrant a claim and how Housing Disrepair Barking can assist you through the process.

Assessing Your Eligibility for a Damp Compensation Claim

Before initiating a damp compensation claim, consider the following questions to gauge your eligibility:

  1. Tenancy Details: Are you renting your home from the council or a housing association?
  2. Rent Payments: Are your rent payments up to date?
  3. Landlord Responsibility: Is your landlord responsible for maintaining the property, including repairs that could prevent dampness?
  4. Reporting the Disrepair: Have you formally reported the damp issue to your landlord, preferably in writing?
  5. Timely Repairs: Has your landlord failed to address the damp issue reasonably?

If you can affirmatively answer these questions, you likely have grounds to proceed with a damp compensation claim.
