Who is Responsible for Cleaning Gutters in a Rented Property?

Hi I wonder if anyone could help me out with a question. My tenant needs the gutters cleanen out is that up to them to sort out or do I need to get them done ?

Hi, does your tenancy agreement have a term specifying who is responsible for cleaning gutters?

If they are damaged or need repair, then this will be your responsibility.

If it just cleaning, a term in the tenancy agreement would make it clear who is responsible. If there is no such term, then the RLA’s advice column recommends landlords do this where needed.

If a blockage in gutter drainage causes a leak, then it will be your responsibility to fix it! So best perhaps to clear the gutters either way.

Hope this helps,

hi sam,

Thank you for your response


Landlords job and it may throw up other needed repairs
