When the condition of a rented home or apartment, whether it’s through social housing or a private landlord, has worsened or altered negatively in comparison to the state of the property when you moved in, it’s known as housing disrepair.
Landlords are responsible for any exterior repairs to a rental property, including damage to doors and windows. This duty continues even if the lease specifies that the tenant is solely liable for repairs. Damaged or broken windows and doors may lead to many problems, including dampness and decay, as well as being a safety hazard.
