 IMPORTANT INFORMATION

1) Landlord insurance is highly recommended for all investment properties.

2) Who is responsibile for repairs

When it comes to repairs in a rental property, there is shared responsibility between the tenant and the lessor.The lessor or their property manager/agent must keep the property in good condition, so it is safe and fit for the tenant to live in. It is up to the tenant to make sure they do not damage the property, and they must keep it clean and tidy. If the tenant or their guest damages a rental property, they may have to pay for it to be repaired. 

When repairs are required, the lessor or their agent generally carry out the repairs, or arrange for someone to do so. Tenants should not attempt repairs without the lessor’s permission.


3) Rights and responsibilities of Lessors 

Lessor or manager's responsibilities when renting:

  • provide and maintain the premises in a good state of repair
  • provide reasonable security with locks in good working order and keys supplied for each lock
  • respect the rights of the tenant to quiet enjoyment in the premises
  • ensure the premises are vacant, clean and in good repair at the start of the tenancy (i.e. nobody else or their possessions should be there)
  • reimburse the tenant for money spent on emergency repairs subject to certain conditions
  • ensure residents in rooming accommodation have reasonable access to bathrooms and common areas and that these areas and any inclusions should be clean and in good working order
  • pay all charges, levies, premiums, rates and taxes for the premises and cover the costs of preparing the tenancy agreement
  • comply with the laws regarding health and safety of people using or entering the property
  • lodge all bond monies with the RTA
