Repairs and Maintenance
Making repairs can be one of the more contentious parts of the rental relationship. 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 usually 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. Click on the links below for more information on property repairs and maintenance.
