Landlords rights and responsibilities


Your landlord also has rights and responsibilities.

The landlord's rights:

  • To receive rent on or before the due date
  • To be advised of any necessary repairs
  • To be given proper notice by a tenant if he or she wishes to leave
  • To inspect the property by appointment
  • To expect compliance by the tenant with any reasonable arrangements for refuse disposal and housekeeping

The landlord's responsibilities:

  • Supply you with his/her name and address and that of his or her agent
  • Should access be required to the property, reasonable notice must be given, for example, to carry out necessary repairs
  • Provide a receipt of all money paid; if rent is paid weekly a rent book must be supplied
  • Provide you with a legal notice to leave should they require their property back, although this does not necessarily mean you are required to leave
