More action on housing disrepair

Events in the news have focussed attention on the sometimes indifferent attitudes towards keeping rented properties in healthy and proper condition. We are working with a number of solicitors who are taking action on behalf of tenants against their landlords, specifically housing associations or local authorities themselves, in instances where properties fall short of the required standard.

The object is to remedy faults, and secure compensation where appropriate, for people who would previously only have had a small voice against big organisations.
ARAG has been helping grow this sector and it fi ts neatly with our aim to continually diversify in the aft er the event market.
Housing disrepair claims typically follow a pattern and because of this we are able to offer a fixed premium, deferred until the end of the case, with standard cover of typically £10,000 for all disbursements and adverse costs.

It is excellent news both for residents of dilapidated, unrepaired or damp dwellings and for those solicitors who have become specialised in this area. As firms become unsettled by negative developments that affect the flow of business in the ATE market, such claims will surely enjoy further interest.

ARAG’s Housing Disrepair cover can be used for either fast or multi-track claims.
