Housing advice for Northern Ireland

Repairs

Generally, you will be liable for any repairs to the structure of the property and furnishings which were supplied with the letting and the tenants will be liable for repairs to their own items or for repairing any damage which is their fault. You should specify repairing obligations 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.

There are certain fundamental rights which all private tenants enjoy. Your tenancy agreement may give you additional rights and responsibilities but it cannot take away your basic legal rights.
