Residential Landlord’s Letter to Tenant Regarding Proposed Remedial Work at Property

Letter to Residential Tenant: Access for Repair Work

PROP.RES.210

This Letter to Residential Tenant: Access for Repair Work is for use by a residential landlord who wishes to carry out repair work at a tenanted property. This letter should be printed on the landlord’s headed paper and sent to the tenant.

Most tenancy agreements (including our Simply-docs templates) allow the landlord to enter the property during the term of the tenancy to carry out repairs, subject to giving the tenant reasonable notice (or sometimes a set amount of notice). Landlords should ensure that they comply with the relevant terms of the tenancy agreement when arranging repairs.

This Letter provides details of the proposed repairs, confirms when the work will be carried out and by whom, and sets out the arrangements for access to the Property. The tenant is asked to sign a copy of the letter and return it to the landlord to confirm their acceptance of the arrangements. The landlord must remember to send the tenant two copies of the letter and a stamped addressed envelope.

Optional phrases / clauses are enclosed in square brackets. These should be read carefully and selected so as to be compatible with one another. Unused options should be removed from the document.

This Letter to Residential Tenant: Access for Repair Work is in open format. Either enter the requisite details in the highlighted fields or adjust the wording to suit your purposes.
