    No, s11 of the Landlord & Tenant Act 1985 says you have to provide facilities for heating water and space (rooms).

    No, it doesn't. It obliges L to keep in working repair the installations that exist; but not to provide those that don't.

    The HHSRS is not simply 'guidelines'. There is legislation: The Housing Health and Safety Rating System (England) Regulations 2005.
    So if I only have to maintain existing installations but the HHSRS guidelines say I must provide 'fitted' heating which takes precedent?


      Both bind you, if they apply- their respective scopes are not the same. One might apply and the other not.

      1. Public advice is believed accurate, but I accept no legal responsibility except to direct-paying private clients.
