Compensation Claim against my landlord
09/06/2010 8:20 pm
I am currently seeking compensation from my landlord due to the harm and distressed they allowed my family and I to suffer by failing to adhere and implement their own policy against another tenants as he got a dog which according to their policy and our tenancy were not permitted as we shared communual hallway.
But my housing association failed to even acknowledge my complaints, investigate or do anything to help sort out the matter and subsequently this led to our neighbour racially, violent and physically assaulting and harrassed my family and I.
We have now been moved to temporary accommodation as the nieghbour got me arrested by making up a loads of lies about me. Further to this knowing fully well that I had and have been complaing about my neighbour and his dog for nearly 4 years - he was given written permission to keep the dog by a very vindictive and nasty member of staff who has since been sacked.
The housing association hired an investigator to review my complaints as they would not allow my complain to go to their panel as advised by the housing Ombudsman actually they have done everythign in their power to prevent this. However their have behave in the most appalling way, they have lied, they have coluded with each other and taken action that made the matter worse for my family and I.
Finaly they have moved us and the investigation has concluded they had not dealt with the matter well and has ultimately compunded the situation by giving my neighbour permission to keep the dog, which they knew had an adverse and detemental affects on my health and that of my son.
They have advised me to quantify compensation, can anyone help. This is a brief outline of what happenned but their behaviour was nasty, vindictive and malicous and caused my family and I a lot of pain and suffering.
My neighbour consider himself disable due to his heart problems but my son and I hafve our own disability which was ignored, my daughter had to eave home for her own safety and I lost a lot of time from work, my and my son's health got worse.......
So how do I quantify our siffering, apin and lost? Can anyone help?
They have advised that they rather we come to an agreement among ourselves and not to get any solicitors involve
