Understanding Disrepair Responsibilities

The National Training Academy
Delivery Method: e-Learning

Disrepair is not a widely used term. It is often difficult to interpret its meaning. As with any legal definition it can be open to interpretation. It will depend on each individual situation.

Generally speaking the housing provider and tenant have different responsibilities when it comes to the upkeep and repairs of a property. Where the repairs are the responsibility of the housing provider, they are obliged to carry out these repairs within a reasonable period of time of notification.

  • Main statutory controls for repair and safety in housing
  • Understanding disrepair including responsibility and impact
  • Consequences of non-compliance and potential defences to a disrepair claim
  • Legislation relating to disrepair and importance of related legislative duties
  • Tenancy agreement and tenant handbooks on repair responsibilities
