    No win no fee compensation in Guildford

    Seeking compensation from a landlord

    If you have had an accident at home then there is a chance that you could make a no win no fee compensation in Guildford claim against your landlord if you rent your home, if your accident was the fault of the landlord.

    So what can you make a no win no fee compensation Guildford claim for against your landlord? It varies depending on the specific nature of your accident, but here at Accident Advice Helpline we have put together some information for you to help you find out if you can make a claim.

    Faults with the property

    Your landlord has a responsibility, or duty of care to ensure that the property in which you are living is well maintained. Although you have to ensure that little repairs are done (perhaps if the wallpaper gets ripped you will have to patch it up) but bigger issues are likely to fall under the remit of your landlord or managing agent.

    These sorts of things can include problems with flooring. It may be that there is a loose tile in the bathroom or a bit of carpet that is sticking up. You may even report that there are grippers sticking up through carpet and you are concerned that someone could injure themselves on it. If you report such incidents to your landlord and they refuse to fix them, or take too long to fix them, then you could be able to make a no win no fee compensation in Guildford claim if you are injured as a result of your landlord’s negligence.

    Faults with contents

    It is not just the property itself that can cause problems, but sometimes the contents within it. Even if your agreement wasn’t on a part-furnished basis there are likely to be items, such as kitchen cupboards, that are still present. These belong to the landlord, and therefore come under their responsibility.

You can speak to us at  Accident Advice Helpline to find out more and one of our solicitors will be able to give you specific advice on how to proceed.

    Faulty appliances

    Your landlord also has a legal responsibility to perform gas checks, or to arrange for a professional to perform these, on a yearly basis. These are designed to ensure that any of the gas appliances in the property are working properly and do not pose a danger to you and other residents.
