Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Welcome to JA.
I am sorry to hear about your situation..
The landlord has an obligation under the landlord and tenants act to repair the damage to the property. Further it is likely within your contract that the landlord has to carry out repairs too.
In addition if you suffer injury as a result of the damage you can bring a claim against the landlord under the defective premises act. Therefore it will not be in the landlords best interests for him to tell you to clear the glass since if you suffer injury you potentially can claim against him.
That said if the damage was your fault and not due to a potentially defective door and or glass then the landlord can fix it and seek to recover the money from you.
Do you understand what I have stated so far if yes I will proceed to the next step?
No it wont costs you extra.
The next step is to write to the landlord and remind him of his obligations under the law and likely within the contract too. If he disagrees I suggest you consider filling a complaint with the local council as they can step in and resolve the issue which can be forcing the landlord to carry out the works necessary to ensure you are safe.
