The local authority owned rental properties in Leeds amount to 6.2% of the homes in the area. In West Yorkshire, this figure falls to 5.3%. Local news teams report that the number of council owned homes in Leeds has dropped by approximately 5,000 houses in the last decade. England has the right to buy law, which enables tenants to eventually purchase their property. This has led to a lack of social housing throughout the country, but especially in traditionally lower income areas like Leeds and West Yorkshire.

Of all the 350k+ homes within Leeds, only 1.6% are owned by social landlords and housing associations. In West Yorkshire, this figure jumps to 3.6%. Housing association properties are also called Registered Social Landlords. Often, they provide temporary or permanent residence for tenants on low incomes.
Although council homes and social housing associations provide rents at lower prices, this does not diminish the duty of care these landlords owe you. If you pay rent in social housing, you have the same rights as those renting from a private landlord. This duty of care involves making certain repairs within a timely manner of your requesting them to do so.
Our friendly team of helpful housing disrepair solicitors will fight those landlords on your behalf, taking them through the judicial system to get the result you need. Trust our team to hold your landlord accountable, help you get those repairs, and even claim maximum compensation on your behalf.

If your rented home falls below a reasonable living standard because it has damp, mould or other issues, you could make a claim for compensation. You must have reported the issues and given your landlord a reasonable amount of time to repair the issues. If they have not you can make a claim for damage, personal injury, financial loss and/or nuisance.
Your landlord is responsible for the above repairs irrespective of what your tenancy agreement says. Your landlord may be responsible for additional repairs stated in your tenancy agreement.
Claims can be made either during your tenancy or after your tenancy, as long as you are making the claim within 6 years of the date that you informed your landlord of the disrepair. Personal injury claims related to housing disrepair must be made within 3 years of the date that you informed your landlord.
