Repairs and Maintenance

Making sure everything is in working order and answering requests for repairs can be one of the more contentious aspects of renting property. Landlords may view repairs as an annoying expense that takes an unnecessary bite out of their profits. But for tenants, clogged pipes, a malfunctioning toilet, or a broken heater can be a constant source of frustration in the home. Landlords generally have a legal obligation to make repairs and maintain rental property, and must follow the law when it comes to entering rented property to make repairs. In certain cases, a landlord may also be liable for injuries to tenants. This section covers the responsibilities and rights of both tenants and landlords when it comes to repairs and maintenance.
