This three-part podcast series aims to examine the legal remedies available for poor housing conditions. Part One will consider the terms of a tenancy, the terms implied by common law and terms implied by statute. It will look at the definition of a repair and look at points commonly raised by landlords in relation to particular items of disrepair. The podcast will then consider the definitions within section 11 of the Landlord and Tenant Act 1985 and set out the notice and access requirements for landlords in order that they can comply with repairing covenants.
