Information for Landlords
Landlords have the same responsibilities for repairs during the coronavirus outbreak.
It is likely that during the coronavirus outbreak contractors will only be available to deal with urgent repairs that pose a direct risk to safety. An agreement should be made between tenants and landlords for all non-urgent repairs to be carried out at a later date.
Should a contractor need to visit at tenant at their home to carry out essential work they must follow the following government advice:
- Keep a minimum of 2m apart from people in your household.
- Wash their hands frequently.
- Wipe down all surfaces in the area that they have been working in.
