It is important to understand the legal requirements, maintenance duties, and emergency protocols that every landlord should know.

One of the legal requirements is to maintain minimum temperature standards of around 68°F (20°C) during the day and a little lower at night. In addition, landlords must comply with building and safety codes and ensure that heating systems are regularly inspected for safety and efficiency.

Landlords must also provide hot water that meets health and safety standards. Regular maintenance of boilers and water heaters is necessary to prevent breakdowns and ensure a consistent hot water supply.

If tenants report any heating or hot water issues, landlords must respond promptly and hire qualified repair professionals like Plumb-line. In emergencies, landlords should have a clear action plan and provide temporary solutions to tenants if necessary.

Tenants should also report any issues promptly and use heating and hot water facilities responsibly to prevent damage and excess wear.
