Customer Question

Hi

My son and his young family have put up with years of antisocial behaviour from neighbours.They report it them it's quiet for a few weeks them there is another episode.They have been spoken to by antisocial team but landlord does nothing.
y son wants to move within next couple of years but are unlikely to sell as they will have to tell about neighbours.I makes my blood boil that a hardworking young couple have to put up with this.THe property is also a mess.the house are on benefits so getting everything paid.Are we able to sue the landlord for his failure to deal with this and for my son being u able to sell his property.
Thank you

Thank you for your question.

Is the landlord a private landlord or a council or social landlord?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

private landlord

Expert:  JGM replied 3 years ago.
A private landlord is not responsible for the actings of his tenant. The tenant is responsible. However, there may be a right of action against the landlord in the title deeds. Do you have a copy of the title deeds that you could upload [email protected] and ask them to forward the file toCustomer

HI


IS THAT MY SONS TITLE DEEDS THAT YOu WANT TO LOOK AT?I cant believe the landlord can get off with this its shocking What about the proprty company they must have a duty to make sure the property is maintaned.They state on their website a stricg vetting procedure in place when taking on tennants. T his was absplutely not done as this woman is dss and getting everyting paid for her


Thanks Sandra

Yes, your sons title deeds are likely to have the same terms and conditions in them as the landlord's titles so that is what I would like to see. The landlord and the letting company are not responsible for the actings of the tenant. However the landlord may have certain responsibilities under the conditions of the title. That is what needs to be looked at.
