Landlords have to follow a number of rules in order to protect their tenants and their property – they must repair the exteriors of buildings (roofing, walls, gutters, windows, piping and doors), as well as utilities and gas pipes. They must also maintain the water tanking system and boilers; install bathrooms; deal with fires and heaters; handle electrical wiring and radiators; and construct or modify bathroom facilities.
