Carrying out repairs quickly keeps tenants happy and protects your property. Be clear on your legal obligations and what you're responsible for fixing.
Addressing repairs quickly reassures tenants and keeps your property in good condition. It also ensures you’re following the law.
Your tenants should let you know as soon as possible when repairs are needed. You should also do regular inspections to check for signs of damage or disrepair.
Landlords must make sure a property meets minimum fitness and safety standards. If you do not carry out essential repairs, your tenants may ask environmental health to intervene.
Protected tenancies and certain tenancies that do not meet fitness standards are subject to rent control. The rent officer restricts the amount of rent you can charge for a rent-controlled tenancy.
