Make a Complaint
Speak to your landlord/agent and bring the problem to their attention. Ask them to carry out the repairs within a suitable timescale. It may be worth advising them that if they do not complete the repairs you will have no option other than to complain to Environmental Health.
If the repairs are not completed proceed to Step 2.
Contact us and we can investigate the matter for you. We will need your details, your landlord/agents name and contact details and a description of the problems. Please note that if you are a Council tenant, you must direct your complaint to your local Council Housing service.
We will then contact the landlord/agent and notify them that we have received a complaint from their tenant and will arrange to visit you and inspect your property for hazards.
Any hazards that are identified will be assessed and where necessary the owner will be required to undertake works to reduce the identified hazards to an acceptable level.
If the owner doesn’t agree to complete the works within a reasonable timescale then we may take enforcement action under the Housing Act 2004 to make sure the repairs are completed.
