Repairs

Date Submitted: 23/01/2011   Author: Robert Macfarlane

It is an implied term of every assured tenancy that the landlord or his agent shall have the legal right to enter the property to carry out the repairs that the landlord is entitled to execute and to inspect the condition and state of repair of the property.

In law (except EMERGENCY ) the landlord is obliged to give his tenant 24 hours notice and enter at reasonable times of the day.

The repairing obligations will include those items defined by s11 (6 ) of the landlord and tenant act 1985 (structure of property and services for supply of water electricity and other utilities etc ) and any further obligations included in or implied by the agreement.
