I have relatives who have a protected tenancy, living in an oldish house in a rural area. Now in their 70’s they are finding it impossible to heat the house adequately in the winters. The heating system is antiquated and in need of updating. They have already provided improved loft insulation, paid for cavity wall insulation & secondary glazing. The old wooden windows are rotten and have had several repairs over the years.
They have approached the Landlord’s Managing Agent (the property is owned by an Estate) who is very reluctant to do anything to bring the property up to today’s standards. There has been talk of perhaps installing a new wood-burning fired/fuelled system – mains gas is not available – but with the tenants paying for the installation of chimney-liners and other items.
I have read articles outlining the Protected Tenants rights and the protections afforded under that status. However, what rights do tenants have when it comes to major items being replaced when these items come to the end of their working life , and what obligations do Landlords have to maintain them or replace them ?
Thank you in advance for your comments.
