- Who has responsibility for repairs?
Repairs and maintenance are normally split between
the Landlord and the Tenant. In such cases the Landlord will take responsibility for the structure and common parts
which include grounds, corridors and staircases.
There are two different ways this can be covered:
This is a charge
which is usually made in advance. This is an amount set by the Management Company or Landlord in advance, normally
at the beginning of the financial year.
In this case, the Landlords would ask for payment
as and when payments are to be made. This is relatively unusual and would only apply to small developments.
It is usually the responsibility of the
Landlord, although they will recover the cost from the tenant. In some older blocks the Tenant may be responsible.
