How do I know if I can claim for an Accident in a Rented Home?

All rental properties should be kept in a safe condition. In most cases your landlord, private or public, will have an obligation and the responsibility to make repairs to the property when needed for:

  • Fixing gas leaks
  • Repairing plumbing issues
  • Addressing mould and damp problems
  • Making repairs to roofs, brickwork and plasterwork
  • Ensuring the boiler is safe and in full working order
  • Making sure the fridge, dishwasher, washing machine and other white goods are maintained
  • Defects with flooring or structures inside the home.

When issues aren’t repaired properly to comply with health and safety standards, health issues can arise with the tenants, such as cuts, bruises and respiratory problems. The severity of injuries can escalate quickly when it comes to gas leaks and faulty boilers to have the potential to cause fatalities.
