Common law dictates that landlords have a duty to guarantee the safety of rented property and its contents. Of utmost importance is that no injury or damage is caused to the tenants, neighbours or public as a direct result of the landlord neglecting his/her responsibilities. In addition to common law, there are regulations specific to rental properties – these fall under the landlord responsibilities and must be followed to the letter. The tenant also has a duty of care not to break the law in your property.

Landlord responsibilities include:

1) Maintaining the structure and exterior of the house.

2) Ensuring all ‘installations’ are working, such as gas, electricity, and heating

3) Installation and appliance maintenance and overall safety. Please note: only applies to landlord-owned appliances

4) Treat potentially health-threatening issues such as rising damp and now a latest health threatening issue is methamphetamine.

5) Anything else that’s stipulated in the tenancy agreement
