Durbins Lettings - Maintenance

All our properties are thoroughly inspected prior to tenants moving in and, as a tenant, you will be expected to look after the property as if it were your own. However, maintenance issues can arise whilst tenants are residing there and it is your responsibility to notify our maintenance department of any problems during your tenancy.


The responsibility for maintenance issues are not always that of the landlords. As a tenant, you must take proper care of the property and you are required to inform us in good time if works are required, otherwise you could be held negligent if you do not.
