All landlords have a legal duty to ensure their properties are safe and structurally maintained. Unfortunately, some landlords do not follow the law and put their tenants at significant risk simply to save money or because they do not care.
However, you should not have to suffer if your landlord has failed to fulfil legal requirements.
If you have notified your landlord regarding an issue and they have failed to fix it within a reasonable time, then you may be entitled to compensation.
