It all depends on what the repairs are for and for what is covered in the tenancy agreement.

If accidental damage, say to furniture or fixings, thats for the tenant to fix.

If its the boiler, a window that has blown or even a fence panel being blown over for example, that would be down to the landlord to repair.

If youve damaged it , fix it yourself otherwise they should be paying for repairs

Damage should be covered in the security deposit and most tennents want that back so they fix it there self.

repairs to the flat e.g. boiler electrics should be the landlords issue

You need to check your lease, whether it's a repairing lease or a non repairing one. Generally it shows in the rent payable, obviously one is less costly than the other
