Landlords, Local Authorities & Housing Associations; ( Housing Director, Environmental Health Officers, Architects, Surveyors, Technical Officers & Property Managers ) Legal responsibilities Extract:- Tenant's Remedies: The tenant can recover financial compensation for losses which result from the landlord's failure to repair provided, of course, that these losses are reasonably foreseeable, although not for any losses incurred prior to the landlord having knowledge of the disrepair. DAMAGES: The aim of damages is to restore the tenant to the position he or she would have been in had there been no breach of repairing covenant. The amount of damages awarded will depend on the circumstances of the case, and the true losses suffered by the tenant. A compensation award to a tenant might include the cost of the tenant carrying out the repairs on the landlord's behalf, the cost of restoring internal decoration, compensation for the inconvenience of living in premises that were out of repair, compensation for injury to health, the cost of moving to and occupying alternative accommodation, and the cost of storing furniture.
Builders & Sub Contractors; Legal responsibilities The Act establishes a duty of care builders and their sub-contractors owe to the occupiers of property they construct or modify, and also establishes a duty of care landlords hold towards their tenants and any third parties who might be injured by their failure to maintain or repair property.
It’s just a musty smell (a smell that harms your health?!) Bleach and Household cleaners will kill it (this does NOT work) 100% destruction (not until NOW) Cover up with Fungicidal paint (is just that....a cover up) It’s just an Allergy (it’s NOT, it’s an immune system attack) You can retain ‘dried-out’ plasterboard ( Once the mould is born it won’t / can’t die until NOW)
Leviticus 14 The LORD said to Moses and Aaron, “When you enter the land of Canaan, which I am giving you as your possession, and I put a spreading mould in a house in that land, the owner of the house must go and tell the priest, ‘I have seen something that looks like a defiling mould in my house.’ The priest is to order the house to be emptied before he goes in to examine the mould, so that nothing in the house will be pronounced unclean. After this the priest is to go in and inspect the house. He is to examine the mould on the walls, and if it has greenish or reddish depressions that appear to be deeper than the surface of the wall, the priest shall go out the doorway of the house and close it up for seven days. On the seventh day the priest shall return to inspect the house. If the mould has spread on the walls, he is to order that the contaminated stones be torn out and thrown into an unclean place outside the town. He must have all the inside walls of the house scraped and the material that is scraped off dumped into an unclean place outside the town. Then they are to take other stones to replace these and take new clay and plaster the house. “If the defiling mould reappears in the house after the stones have been torn out and the house scraped and plastered, the priest is to go and examine it and, if the mould has spread in the house, it is a persistent defiling mould; the house is unclean. It must be torn down—its stones, timbers and all the plaster—and taken out of the town to an unclean place. King Tuts Curse Mould has been written about for 1,000’s of years
