Housing conditions

Almost a quarter of homes in the private rented sector – more than one million homes – do not meet the Decent Homes Standard, according to the 2019 English Housing Survey. With the increased focus on housing conditions that will follow the introduction of the Renters’ Reform Bill, we help landlords and agents improve standards in the private rented sector and have your back if problems arise.

Housing conditions

The law relating to the condition of rented property is complex. It is found in a plethora of acts of Parliament and legal cases from over the past 100 years or so.

At Landlord Action we are here to make things simpler. So, instead of muddling through, instruct us if you receive a Pre-Action Protocol Letter Before Action, and we will give you clear straight-forward advice.

Access injunctions

If your tenant refuses access, you should make them aware that this is a breach of contract, and that they may be sued for damages. Take this opportunity to remind them of their legal obligation to allow access for repairs. If the tenant still refuses access, seek to enforce the contract with an injunction to gain access.
