Repairs and Dampness
All landlords are under a legal obligation to keep their properties wind and watertight. Many landlords will also wish to keep their property in good repair.
You should report any repairs or dampness to your landlord as soon as possible. Tenants of private landlords who have had their belongings damaged or health affected by dampness may be entitled to compensation but will need to take legal advice.
Shelter may be able to help you if you your landlord refuses to make repairs.
Tenants of housing associations may find that their landlords operate a scheme to compensate tenants for losses arising through dampness in their home – check with your landlord.
