Disrepair but no disrepair claim? Tenants’ Rights under the Environmental Protection Act

Posted on 14th December 2017

Sadly, many tenants find themselves living in unsatisfactory living conditions which are having or could have an impact on the health and safety of their families. However, not all are in a position to bring a claim for disrepair. This is because where the issue relates to an inherent defect in the property rather than the structure or an installation being “in disrepair”, no such claim will exist.
