Have you been injured in rental accommodation?
Although you used to be able to rent out any type of accommodation, landlords who now want to rent out residential properties must now ensure that they meet certain criteria. For example, rental properties may have to have regular boiler checks to ensure the property is safe. Similarly, they may have to ensure that there is a fire exit available and that fire safety doors are installed before they are allowed to move tenants into the property.
Whilst many landlords argue that the current regulations are too strict, they can help to ensure that tenants are kept safe and that they aren’t at an increased risk of being hurt or suffering an injury. If you’re living in rental accommodation and you don’t believe that your landlord is abiding by the relevant laws, there is action you can take if you’re hurt as a result.
If, for example, you’re hurt in a rental property and it wasn’t your fault, injury solicitors in Upton Lovell may find it relatively easy to help you to obtain compensation if it can be shown that the landlord hadn’t followed the law.
Even if your landlord has met the relevant guidelines, he or she could still be responsible for any injuries which occur in the home, if they are caused on the property. If, for example, there is a fault with the central heating and you notify your landlord but they don’t attempt to fix it, they may be liable for any injuries you suffer as a result and injury solicitors in Upton Lovell could help you to make a compensation claim against them.
