Ask an Property Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
Hi, could you please confirm if this is a Lease for a commercial or residential property? How long is the Lease? Any information you can give will assist me. I look forward to hearing from you. Al
Thanks for your reply.
I am afraid that there is no condition imposed on the Landlord to let the property in a good state of repair or otherwise. Under Assured Shorthold tenancies, the only protection a Tenant has is governed by the Landlord and Tenant Act- meaning that the Landlord is responsible for maintaining and repairing the main structure and heating system/water system and the Environmental Protection Act meaning that he is under a duty to get rid of any damp in the property. A Landlord is also under a duty to provide a Gas Safety Check each year (if there is a gas Boiler).
I hope this answers your question and sets out the legal position.
