Landlord Obligations & Your Rights
Within most tenancy agreements, a landlord has certain obligations that they must fulfil, including maintenance and repairs to the property. If you have raised the issues with your landlord and they have not taken any action, then you should contact us as soon as possible. You may be able to make a claim If your landlord has failed to make repairs within a reasonable amount of time after you have formally reported the issues.
