An unusual one this. I have recently moved into a housing association flat. There are gardens to the rear of the property and there is one that I will use. There is a single fence alongside the gardens with a field behind which is reasonably maintained. The field is overrun by rabbits and they get into the garden and eat tenants’ plants. To keep them out the fence would have to be upgraded to make it rabbit proof. As the landlord provides the gardens for tenants use, should they provide a minimum standard and are they therefore responsible for upgrading the fence?

Hi Ronald,

Strictly speak the Housing Association shuld repair this however this is a slightly grey area. I would advise getting materials to make a temporary repair and simply fixing it yourself.
