Under Section 11 of the Landlord & Tenant Act 1985. a landlord is responsible for keeping in repair the installations for the provision of space heating. If the heating fails and the landlord, even though it has been reported to him, does nothing about it, under the Housing Health and Safety Rating System introduced in the Housing Act 2004, the tenant can apply to the Local Authority Environmental Health Department to inspect the property and assess the condition against 29 ‘hazards’, one of which is cold. If there are any category 1 hazards from the inspection, the Local Authority will issue an improvement notice on the landlord ordering him to bring the property up to standard (within a specified time scale. The Local Authority may also charge the landlord for serving this notice)
