I understand, you might just about be within the time limit to bring a claim namely 6 years. That being the case, you should gather any evidence you can of the issue and instruct a solicitor, they can request documents from the landlord too and the trustees and you can use that to build your case. If you want to find a solicitor to assist with this process and represent you at the hearing you can find a solicitor using the Law Society find a solicitor search option here: You can search by town or postcode to find one near you.
