“Can my tenant withhold rent because of a faulty boiler?” – D.Greene, RM.org Member

In general, tenants do not have the right to withhold rent if the landlord does not carry out repairs. Doing so could jeopardise the tenant’s right to remain in the accommodation. In certain circumstances, however, a tenant can pay for repairs and deduct the cost from future rent.
