It is important to keep your property in a reasonable
condition. After all, your Landlords insurance will
expect you to do so and any claim could be reduced
or void if a lack of maintenance contributes towards
a loss taking place, or being more severe than might
otherwise be the case.
there are other reasons why this is important, not
least of which is that well maintained and attractive
properties can attract rents at the top end of the
range for the type and size within a given area.
In addition, landlords are required to ensure that
their properties are safe for habitation and a number
of local and national regulations impose specific
requirements on Landlords to maintain gas and electrical
appliances to an adequate standard.
