What are the Duties of Tenants?

It is the responsibility of all occupants to ensure the landlord can effectively carry out his duties. All residents must: 

  • Allow the Landlord access, at reasonable times, to any occupied room.
  • Comply with arrangements made by the Landlord in respect of fire precautions or litter storage/disposal.
  • Take reasonable care to avoid damaging items which the Landlord is obliged to keep in good repair. 
  • Do not take part in anti-social behavior that affects other occupants/neighbours.
