Millions of people live in housing owned by landlords across the UK. A landlord can be a local housing authority, a private landlord or a letting agent working on behalf of a private landlord. Whoever the landlord is, they have a legal obligation to ensure the safety and well being of the tenant in their property. This legal obligation not only covers making sure the living accommodation is safe and of a liveable standard, but making sure any communal areas such as walkways and gardens are safe too.
If landlords fail in this duty and someone is injured as a result, then it may be possible to make a landlord negligence compensation claim against them. Landlords should have liability insurance in place to pay such claims, ensuring that you receive the full amount of compensation that you are entitled to. Some of the circumstances in which a landlord negligence compensation claim can be possible are listed below:
- Broken or lack of lighting which has directly caused an injury
- Glass doors not fitted with safety glass
- Carbon monoxide poisoning claims
- Defective railings, steps or floors which have caused injury
- Poorly fitted cupboards and doors which have fallen and caused injury
- Illness caused by poor conditions in the property
This list is not exhaustive as any incidence where injury has occurred and was caused by poor maintenance or negligence on behalf of the landlord is liable for a landlord negligence compensation claim.
