Council renters forced to report housing issues TEN times before being noticed24/06/19
One in 10 council renters who have experienced a problem with their property have had to report it more than 10 times, new figures show.
Charity Shelter said five million people have reported an issue with their home in the past three years, including electrical hazards, gas leaks and faulty lifts, with no action.
The survey, carried out by YouGov, suggests thousands of families are still being let down by poor regulation - with more than 400,000 people during this time encountering a problem with fire safety.
Shelter said it now fears that the current regulator of social housing is failing residents at risk. It said three quarters of social tenants in England aren't even aware that such a body exists.
