Your Landlord's responsibilities

Your landlord is responsible for making repairs to the structure and exterior of the building. These repairs could include roofing, windows, sinks, toilets, pipes and draining, gas appliances, heating, electrical wiring and ventilation. Any damage caused internally as result of damaged exterior is also the responsibility for the landlord to fix. It is also to be noted that not everything in the house is your landlord’s responsibility, some of the things such as maintenance of the garden are your own responsibility unless stated in your tenancy agreement.
