Are you a tenant who’s been dealing with a bad landlord? If so, you’re not alone. Unfortunately, there are a lot of landlords out there who don’t treat their tenants fairly. But the good news is that you can fight back by claiming against them. Here’s why it’s necessary to do so:
In recent years, the cost of living has increased tremendously. This has made renting a property more difficult, as people are finding it harder to afford their rent. Landlords also have a moral obligation to help their tenants, which means that they should make sure their tenancy deposit is protected and their home is not in disrepair. However, many landlords are not fulfilling their obligations, which often results in tenants being forced to move out or live in poor conditions. This is an issue that needs to be addressed, as it is unfair to both tenants and landlords.
As a tenant, you have the right to have your tenancy deposit protected in one of the three government-approved schemes. If your landlord hasn’t done this, they are not respecting their obligations or your right to protected finances. This could put your own financial safety at risk and could make life much more difficult. tenancy deposit protection schemes are in place to give you peace of mind that your deposit is safe and will be returned to you at the end of your tenancy, providing there is no damage to the property. If your landlord doesn’t protect your deposit, you could find yourself out of pocket and without a place to live.
Housing disrepair issues such as mould and dampness are health risks, they could not only cause you to be ill, and face inconveniences, but can also damage your property, cause you to miss out on work and make you pay medical expenses. this is increasingly unaffordable in an age of increased cost of living. While housing disrepair can occur for a variety of reasons, often it is the result of neglect on the part of the property owner. In such cases, it is the tenant who suffers the consequences. If you are facing housing disrepair issues, it is important to take action to protect your health and your property. Taking action now can help you avoid costly repairs down the road and keep you safe from the potential risks of housing disrepair.
Unfortunately, some landlords try to shift the blame and responsibility for their mistakes onto their tenants. If you are faced with this situation, it is important to stand up for your rights and hold your landlord accountable. In an era of increasing cost of living, this is simply unacceptable. Tenants already have enough to worry about, without having to worry about their landlord’s negligence. You have an obligation to look after your own interests and those of your family, and you should not be responsible for paying for your landlord’s mistakes.
By claiming against your landlord, you can get money for any damage they’ve caused, get repairs done, and even force them to return your deposit. So if you’re unhappy with your current situation, don’t just sit there and take it – claim against your landlord today!
