One in four tenants renting privately in the UK would not notify their landlord about significant damage, a new research revealed.

The survey from YouGov for property marketplace TheHouseShop found that 27% would remain silent if they were responsible for any major damage to their rental home. However, it also found that they would offer to pay for the repairs.
