Occasionally, situations arise where there are repairs required to be done by the landlord (particularly the landlordís obligations under Section 11 of the Landlord & Tenant Act 1985) and the landlord does not get them done. If the tenant puts in a written request to have the work done, and the landlord fails to address the required repairs, the tenant can obtain three estimates for getting the work done, giving the landlord copies and a reasonable period of time to get the work done. The tenant should tell the landlord that if he fails to do this, he (the tenant) will get the work done himself based on the cheapest of the three estimates, and will deduct the cost from the rent. It is important, therefore, that landlords get necessary repairs done as soon as possible.
