Already, you have to inform your landlord of disrepair if you want to make your claim successful. And you have to give them a reasonable time to respond to fix the problem.
The length of time depends on the severity of the reported repair. If your landlord has yet to fix the repair, you may be entitled to claim compensation for damages, inconvenience you have suffered, or personal injuries.
