Renting a property from a private landlord? Then you're likely to have an Assured Shorthold Tenancy. If that’s the case, your landlord is responsible for most repairs and maintenance in your home.
As a tenant, you need to report any problems to your landlord, so that they can deal with them as soon as possible. That’s why we’ve teamed up with experts from the Tenants’ Voice to create this template letter. You can use it to ask for repairs to your flat or house and to remind your landlord of their responsibilities.
This template letter is part of a full guide, created by The Tenants' Voice, on getting repairs done to your heating and hot water. You can download the guide and more template letters here.
