Despite the following information, it is likely your negligent landlord or landlady will attempt to dodge paying for routine maintenance or historical problems. For instance, even if your belongings have been damaged by mould and your children’s health is affected, some landlords will refuse to take any responsibility. You may have to apply to have your costs and damages paid back. Your landlord may be so angry with you because you reported them to the authorities, that they try, and keep trying to make life difficult for you. Most of these bullying landlords will continue to try and evict you and your family. It has to be noted that not ALL landlords are bullies- there are some good ones out there.
