Landlord Responsibilities By Santo Del Monico

Owning a home is a great dream, for some but it does come with a lot of responsibility. When something goes wrong on a rental property, you may be inconvenienced, but it's not up to you to fix it. As a renter, it is always a good idea to know about landlord responsibilities.Beyond the normal wear and tear, many things can go wrong. Many apartments or rental homes have appliances that come with the property. When something happens to the washer or the stove, you don't have to fix it. This is one of many landlord responsibilities. Besides appliances, the general upkeep of the exterior of the house is also part oflandlord responsibilities. This might include wind damage to siding, peeling paint, broken steps or gutters. You should have a look through your lease, but usually part of landlord responsibilities includes the upkeep and maintenance of the yard, if you have one, and any trees or shrubs. The landlord may pay you to take care of lawn mowing, or they may hire a landscaping company. Landlord responsibilities also extend to your heating and water systems. They should have your heating system inspected each year before it is turned on. If there is a problem with the plumbing or heating, they should fix it, or contact someone to fix it, as soon as possible. If you have any questions about landlord responsibilities, refer to your lease. If the lease fails to help you understand, don't be afraid to call your landlord and ask for specifics. Simple communication is often the key to avoiding huge issues between landlord and tenant.Perhaps one of the biggest landlord responsibilities is to keep records and making sure your security deposit is returned to you when you vacate the premises. Your lease should spell out what is expected when you move out. If you are sure everything is as it should be, and you haven't received your money, you can file a complaint. As a last resort, you can get legal help in regards to landlord responsibilities. If you feel you are mistreated or that your living situation is dangerous and your landlord won't do anything about it, don't be afraid to ask for legal help. At you will find many legal rights of the owner.

What Are The Responsibilities of a Tenant? by dan the roommate man

s a tenant, you have many advantages over homeowners... you don't have to mow the lawn, or paint the house, or repave the driveway. It may seem like you haven't any responsibilities above and beyond getting the rent check in on time... but you do. Through the landlord-tenant laws, you are required to do several things: # Keep your apartment or house safe and sanitary. # Dispose of trash and garbage in a sanitary manner. While your landlord will usually maintain the outside of a rental unit (depending on the lease) you are responsible for the interior. Failing to keep the rented unit clean could result in the loss of your security deposit. # Keep all appliances that the landlord provides in good working order. # Keep the electrical and plumbing fixtures clean and use them properly. If any of these fixtures break, it is your responsibility to contact the landlord. Your landlord is responsible for keeping these things in good working order, and unless they've broken because of your carelessness your landlord is typically responsible for making the repairs. # Not damage the apartment or permit your guests or visitors to do so. # Not disturb other tenants. You have your right to quiet enjoyment, and so do the other tenants. It is the landlord's responsibility to make sure that the noise/comfort level of the other tenants is appropriate, and in order to do this, he or she will want you to help them out. # Permit your landlord to enter your apartment if he makes a reasonable request and gives you at least 24 hours notice. Reasonable request would be to inspect the property - not to snoop around through your things every 2 days throughout your tenancy. You have the right to your privacy, and if your landlord continually demands to enter your apartment, you should contact your local tenant's union to see what actions you should take. # Not allow guests or family members to stay in your apartment beyond a reasonable amount of time without notifying your landlord and having their name added to your lease. If you are aware of your responsibilities as a tenant, and you follow the rules, you should have a happy, healthy stay. On the other hand, failure to do a combination these things could result in a lost security deposit, being sued in small claims court, or worse... eviction!
