2. Figure out if you have a problem that the Board can deal with

Here are some common situations where you might be able to apply to the :

The Board’s website has a list of issues you can apply to the Board about, showing which form to use for each situation. It is important to use the right form.

If you are applying about more than one kind of problem, you can use more than one type of form. Ask the Board to group your applications together if the issues are related.

Time Limit

It is best to apply to the Board within one year after the problem started.

The Board can only the landlord to give you money for problems going back one year before you applied. For example, if the problem went on for 6 months and you apply to the Board 10 months after the problem stopped, you can only get compensation for two months.

Usually the Board can’t do anything if you apply more than a year after the problem stopped or more than a year after you moved out, whichever is earlier.

You should put these dates in your calendar so you don’t miss them.
