Housing Defects (landlord & tenant)
There is a legal assessment that determines how the condition of your home can affect your health and safety.
The assessment considers 29 hazards and the worst conditions found may determine that a house is unsuitable for occupation.
Such hazards involve damp and mould growth, excess cold, excess heat, asbestos, carbon monoxide and fuel combustion products, lead, radiation and entry by intruders. These are simply examples of housing defects that may affect the property and occupiers health.
Roger North Long & Partners have years of experience in providing reports both for property owners, whether they are landlords or owner occupiers and also for tenants of properties.
Many of our housing defect reports have been used in litigation in the past.
