Section 11 of the Landlord and Tenant Act 1985 sets out repairing obligations on the landlord to maintain the structure and exterior of the property, including the supply of gas, water, heating, and sanitation.
Unfortunately, in many circumstances, landlords fail to fulfil these duties to the tenant when problems arise.
Commonly, many tenants face issues such as:
- Cracks to the walls
- Rotten window or door frames
- Broken and faulty gas boilers
- Leaking pipes
- Faulty electrics
- Sanitary fixtures cracked/broken
As a result of the above, the problems can cause a tenant to live in poor living conditions, cause illnesses and damage to belongings.
