Can i leave a contract early, and who is responsible for repairs

Ok so we have been living here for 5 years or so now, and though there has been no major problems (sort of) there has always been a few niggles and now its getting to a point where major cracks are beginning to show and we are not getting anywhere..... so who is responsible for repairs electrical faults - we have constant bulbs and sockets blowing pretty much every day, nothing gets done gas fire - the fire has started sooting and not burning correctly - major carbon monoxide issue, so in winter we cannot have the fire on, we have a child and its not warm, they are trying to charge us for the service. fencing - the fencing outside has been rotten since we moved in, who should be replacing that blocked drains - the main underground drains are blocked and the contract, we have chosen to stay for another 12 months , but now we are not so sure, do we have to stay for 12 or can we move earlier

  • Hello Andy, The landlord is entirely responsible for all the issues you mentioned. You are perfectly entitled to leave, as long as you respect the notice period stated in the tenancy agreement. Thanks, Ruban
