If you are renting a flat in a tower block then it is important to know what your landlord is responsible for and what you the tenant are responsible for. Your landlord is responsible for ensuring that the flat is fit for purpose which involves;
Maintaining the structure of the building, including
- Maintaining the plumbing and hot water system
- Maintaining the electrics and gas
- Maintaining the sewage and drainage system
- Keeping the property vermin and pest free
The landlord must also ensure that the property poses no risks or hazards to the tenant. As a tenant you will be responsible for minor damages and repairs such as replacing a shelf or changing the lightbulbs, and keeping the property clean.
If your landlord has employed someone to carrying out repairs on the property or the tower block in general you should try and be assisting of the work (such as allowing access to your flat).
