Repairs & Maintenance - Lessor Responsibilities

< Back to list

The lessor or provider is responsible for the repair and maintenance of the premises, including common areas or shared facilities.

When you move in, the lessor, agent or provider must ensure the place is in good repair, is clean, fit for you to live in, is reasonably secure and complies with laws relating to health and safety.

You and the lessor, agent or provider must use an Entry Condition Report form to record the condition of the premises at the start of your tenancy. This is only required in rooming accommodation if a bond has been charged.

During the agreement, the lessor or provider must keep the premises and any common areas in good repair, maintain the premises so they are fit for you to live in, ensure the premises is secure and must comply with any laws relating to health and safety.
