As a landlord or a building owner, it is your responsibility to keep your property safe and secure. It may seem like a minor duty, but failure to do so will put employees and occupants at risk. If necessary repairs are not completed, you will be legally liable for anything that occurs as a result.
Some repairs are not essential and can be put off, like marks on the wall. But eventually, they will need to be fixed.
Other issues, however, must be addressed quickly to maintain health and safety levels. But how do you know what minor and what is a serious potential health and safety hazard?
