What is a Rent Repayment Order?

A Rent Repayment order forces a landlord to refund up to 12 months’ rent.

Rent Repayment Orders are awarded if:

  • The property you are renting does not have a license
  • The landlord has not complied with a council notice
  • The tenant has been harassed or evicted without the correct court paperwork

Why do Rent Repayment Orders exist?

Quite simply, lots of landlords regularly break the law. It is not fair that tenants suffer so that landlords can make a bit more money.

The evidence is very clear, you are up to 60x more likely to die in a property where you can bring a Rent Repayment Order.

Rent Repayments are meant to:

  • Compensate tenants who have been put in a risky situation
  • Remove the extra money made by a landlord who is breaking the law
  • Punish the landlord for breaking the law
  • Deter the landlord from breaking the law again
  • Compensate tenants who have lived with poor conditions and bad property management
