After my landlord not doing urgent repairs (leaking roof in master bedroom), I first sent them a letter. After getting no reply for 2 weeks, I then sent them an email after another 2 weeks of inaction. I sent them a Breach of Duty of Care. After another 2 weeks of inaction, I filed at VCAT where the landlord was ordered to complete the repairs in 2 weeks,which was then done. Yesterday VCAT ordered my landlord to reimburse me $2800 for damaged goods and some rent refunded. During the 21/2 months my kids could not stay with me and I became depressed due to limited contact with my kids because of the extreme mould, smell of rotting carpet. I was basically confined to the 2nd bedroom, which had all the contents of my master bedroom stuffed in there, so I hardly had any room. During this time, I was also going through a custody of children battle that I had to put on hold until the repairs were completed and that caused me more pain and suffering. I also couldn't eat in the kitchen as I had cancer and was advised not to work around paint or dyes. All this time, I was breathing in mould and fibreglass fibres. I have a cystoscopy next week and due to breathing all this crap, I was put under more stress. I also had to eat take away most nights cause I was too scared to prepare food in the kitchen and ingest mould. I just want to know if I can claim for pain and suffering due to the inaction, negligence and incompetence of my landlord. It has been 3 months since I notified the landlord of the urgent repairs.
