How long can housing association landlords leave you without hot water or heating?

As mandated by English law, your landlord must ensure you have access to a reliable source of hot water or heat at all times. As a tenant, you have the right to central heating or space-heating apparatus in every room of your home. You also deserve access to boiling water whenever necessary.

As a tenant, you have the right to expect your landlord to responsibly maintain all hot water and heating systems as well as appliances that they have set up. Furthermore, it is essential for these devices to be in proper working order; if any problems arise with the heaters or other related equipment within your rental property, then it is incumbent on them to promptly repair and pay for necessary maintenance expenses.

My roof is leaking, can I claim compensation?

As a landlord, you must ensure that your rental property is properly taken care of and maintained. This includes all facets from water to heating systems, drainage pipes to gas and electricity fittings. If there are any issues with water leakage in the residence that you’re responsible for, it’s up to you as the landlord to react quickly and appropriately address the concern.

They must also ensure that the property is safe and fit for human habitation. If water damage has resulted from a water leak, the landlord may also be responsible for repairing this damage.

In most situations, a landlord can’t terminate your tenancy until the problem they are responsible for has been addressed. In the event that your landlord has failed to resolve an issue which makes living there inappropriate for you and your family, then it is possible to take action in such a situation. Even if the property was deemed secure and appropriate before, you have grounds to act due to this breach of responsibility from their end.

Council & Housing association landlords are responsible for exterior repairs to a rental property, including damage to doors and windows. Despite what the rental agreement might say, it is ultimately a landlord’s responsibility to make sure that windows and doors are in good working order.

Failing to do so can cause serious problems such as mold growth or safety hazards. Landlords should check for indicators of wear-and-tear like eroded sealants, broken door handles/locks, rotten window frames, faulty hinges or broken glass; ensuring too that all external openings remain draughtproof and damp free when closed properly.

While your tenancy agreement may include basic maintenance such as replacing light bulbs, structural repairs are not typically on you. Your landlord should cover all costs associated with these matters.
