Maintain the structure and exterior of the property.
Deal with any problems with the water, gas, or electric supplies.
Maintain any appliances and furniture which they have supplied (if the property is ‘Let’ as ‘furnished’).
Carry out most of the repairs.
Arrange an annual gas safety check (CP12) by a Gas Safe Engineer where there are gas appliance(s).
Ensure that there are smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors (if applicable), and that they are in working order at the start of your tenancy.
Give at least 24 hours notice of visits. At Etheridge Estates, if we cannot contact you and receive a response via either phone, text or email, we will always send you 24 hours written notice of our intended visit (unless it is an emergency).
The landlord should also insure the building to cover the costs of any damage from flood or fire.
You can also request that the Landlord/Agent provide you with a copy of any electrical inspections. All installations and appliances must be safe. As such, it is recommended that checks are carried out every 5 years.
