Responsibilities for Landlord Repairs and tenant rights.

In most cases if you live in a rented house then your landlord is responsible for the repairs. You, the tenant, are usually only responsible for decorations, and for putting right any damage you have caused.

Landlords are almost always responsible for repairs to the following regardless of what your landlord tells you:

  • The structure and outside of the building e.g. the walls, roof, external doors and windows.
  • Sinks, baths, toilets and other sanitary fittings, including pipes and drains.
  • Heating and hot water appliances, gas appliances, pipes, flues and ventilation.
  • Electrical wiring.
  • They are also responsible for putting right any damage to internal decorations that was caused by the disrepair or while repairs they are responsible for are carried out.
