Repairs - what tenants need to know

Where a tenancy agreement is vague about who is responsible for repairs, default repairing obligations will usually apply. Additional information about who is responsible for repairs is usually contained in your tenancy agreement.

You should report any damage or disrepair to your landlord immediately. It's always a good idea to follow up any reports you make over the phone or in person with a letter so both you and your landlord have a record of any work that needs to be done.
