Could you be a bit more specific please; does the damp relate to a property you are occupying under a tenancy agreement. Please provide details.
Right. When does the fixed term of the tenancy agreement expire?
Do you want the damp to be repaired or do you just want out of the tenancy?
In that case I would do two things at the same time:-
It is difficult to say whether you would be able to claim for simple decoaration, the landlord is under an obligation to provide you with a property in repair and if you simply do not like the decoration but it is otherwise reasonable then you will not be able to claim for this. It's obviously quite difficult to tell without seeing the state of decoration.
If this has been useful please kindly click accept so that I may be rewarded for my efforts. It will be gratefully received and you will be free to ask follow up questions.Kind regards,Tom
