We are a charitable foundation (NOT a housing charity) with c40 'protected' tenancies. Our surveyor says that s11 of the L&T Act 1985 requires us to assume responsibility for the repair and maintenance of central heating systems which some of the protected tenants have installed.

Is this correct? It would increase our costs and the staff time involved. If it turns out to be true, do we have any reliable way of getting the Rent Office to approve rent increases to reflect these new duties?

Any advice or help will be really appreciated. Thanks.
