My landlord is carrying out improvement works to the building, do I have to contribute towards the costs?

You should refer to the terms of your lease to establish whether you can be required to contribute to the costs of carrying out improvements. If the lease does not require you to pay for improvements you may not have to contribute towards the costs, however there is sometimes a fine line between repair and improvement depending on the nature of the works. Such matters can be determined by the First-tier Tribunal (Property Chamber) if in dispute.
