Rented accommodation has to be safe for all tenants. If you are injured in rented accommodation, and you believe someone else was to blame, an accident solicitor in Leith could help you claim compensation for your injuries.
Landlords have a duty to maintain properties
Even when your landlord follows the relevant guidelines, accidents and injuries can still occur. As many renters know, persuading your landlord to do work on a rental property can be tough. Whilst many people renting homes would like their property to be upgraded, often this is tempered by the hassle that having work done on your home can involve.
Even a simple redecoration job can involve having to move all of your possessions out of the room or property and rearranging the furniture so that the work can be carried out. When more extensive work is done, such as re-plastering or plumbing works, the disruption can be even greater.
Whilst having work done around your home can be tiresome, it is sometimes necessary to ensure your safety. If you make your landlord aware of a problem that could affect your health, such as a faulty boiler or heating system, and they do nothing about it, they could then be liable for any injuries that you suffer as a result.
