Our new vision
This factsheet provides information about your rights to repairs in rented accommodation.It explains how your rights may be affected by the type of tenancy you have, what to do to get repairs done and what help may be available for doing improvements and adaptations in rented accommodation.Before you take any action consider what security of tenure you have and how easily you can be evicted. If you are not sure what tenancy you have, get advice or try Shelter's interactive tenancy checker
We also publish a range of factsheets on finding accommodation, both in private rented sector and form social landlords, as well as specialist housing such as retirement housing and park homes (see below).You can download the factsheet Tenants’ rights – repairs from the box on the rights,

A download is a document (like a research report, a leaflet, or an application form) that can be transferred from our website to your computer. You can download a file, view it on your screen, print it, or save it to your computer.
PDF stands for ‘portable document format’.
Most downloads on this website are PDFs. We use this format to ensure that the document looks the same on everyone’s computer (website pages, by contrast, appear differently depending on how people have got their computer set up).
Computers use a program called Adobe Acrobat Reader to download PDFs. If you try clicking on a link to download a PDF and it doesn’t work, you will need to install Adobe Acrobat Reader onto your computer.
The process is quite straightforward and is free.
PDFs cannot be changed. If you need to be able to type into a downloaded document (for example, if we are offering a letter template that you need to put your name on) we will provide it as a Microsoft Word document rather than a PDF. You can then download it, type into it and save it to your computer.
Downloads will open on your computer in a new browser window.
Inside this window (below all your web browser menus), there will be a toolbar with options for you to print or save the document.
Close the browser window to return to the Age UK website.
We have made every effort to make our PDFs accessible to screen readers. Here is an overview of your accessibility options available in Acrobat Reader.

You can convert a PDF document into a text file for use with other software and hardware such as Braille printers by opening the PDF and choosing ‘Save as text’ from the File menu.
