Repairs & Maintenance - Your Responsibilities

< Back to list

You are responsible for keeping the premises clean having regard for their condition at the start of the agreement.

You must promptly report any repairs or maintenance to the lessor, agent or provider who must carry out the repairs within a reasonable time.

You must not not make changes or add fixtures to the premises without written permission. You and your guests must not maliciously damage the premises, facilities or common areas.

You can be held responsible for the cost of damage caused by you or your guests. When you move out, you must leave the premises in a clean condition, similar to the condition when you moved in. You are not responsible for reasonable wear and tear during your tenancy.
