We have significant legal powers to make sure that landlords and owners of private properties maintain their properties to a good standard.
These include making sure that:
- Owners of property carry out repairs on substantial problems, and the closure of properties that are unsuitable for human habitation
- Landlords carry out repairs to privately rented property, where the conditions cause problems to occupying tenants
If you live in rented accommodation, and you think that the property is not in good repair, you can contact us for advice and assistance.
