Whose responsibility is it to look after the rented property?

Tenants are only empowered to carry out repairs if their tenancy agreement gives them express permission to do this. Tenants should notify landlords when a property is in need of repair, so that works can be carried out as soon as possible. Landlords have the legal right to enter their property to carry out inspection or repairs with 24 hours' notice.
