Carrying Out Repairs To The Building
The landlord is responsible for all repairs to the outside of the building as detailed below. The tenant will be responsible for the internal decorations but there is no way a landlord can force a tenant to decorate the interior which is why many of these properties are in need of refurbishment when they eventually become vacant. When the property becomes vacant the landlord will have to refurbish the property at their own expense.\r\n\r\nThe law says your landlord has to keep the structure and exterior of the property in good repair. This includes the roof, guttering, walls (but this doesn''t include internal decoration) windows and doors.
