    It's not a statutory duty, no, but what about things like Gas Safety inspections?

      He doesn't have to. He's stupid not to.

      Possibly not doing other things very well?? Insurance? Gas as jeffrey mentioned.. hopefully paying his mortgage & telling HMRC about income...

      He ho..

      I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...

        See other's answers. Do you have concerns about the condition, or repairs not being done etc? If LL chooses never to inspect at all, that's down to him, but if there are things which need addressing, than you report them to him, and he needs to do the addressing.
