What Determines My Claim Value?
This calculator takes into account a few key things. Most importantly, your claim value will be based on:
- The rent you pay
- How severe the disrepair is
- How long there has been disrepair
- The value of any damaged possessions
These form the basic value of your claim. But, as mentioned if you would like a more accurate breakdown of what your claim could be worth, you should speak to a solicitor.
A solicitor will be able to assess your situation to take into account extra factors, such as:
- The types of disrepair
- Type of landlord/property
- Whether you have rent arrears
And, a solicitor may even be able to add value to your claim by pointing out things you could claim for that you had’t thought about.
