Odour problems from homes

We can take action in cases where odours or fumes from a domestic property can be classed as a ‘statutory nuisance’. In order to be classed as a statutory nuisance we have to consider factors such as:

  • strength
  • duration
  • frequency
  • whether the nuisance would interfere with the ‘average’ person's reasonable enjoyment of their property

Gas leaks

If you can smell gas, please contact the National Gas Emergency Service immediately on 0800 111 999.
