Rent: This is one of the tenant’s biggest responsibilities. As part of your tenancy agreement, you agree to pay your rent on time each month. Defaulting in rental payments could damage your deposit and future tenancies.
Bills: Unless stated otherwise, it is the tenant’s responsibility to pay bills, this includes water, gas and electricity. A tenant must also pay, TV license and may need to pay for a phone line and internet/TV packages if required. It is also important that a tenant checks their tenancy agreement to ensure they don’t have to pay any additional charges such as community charges.
Looking after the property: Ultimately it is the tenant’s responsibility to look after the home on a day to day basis. This means ensuring there is no damage to the furnishings if the property came furnished, reporting any repairs to the landlord or managing agent, changing light bulbs if required and checking smoke alarms are working. Additional responsibilities include correctly disposing of rubbish and keeping to the terms of the agreement in regards to smoking, parking and keeping the garden tidy.
Maintenance: It is the landlord’s responsibility to ensure that any maintenance issues that have been reported by the tenant are taken seriously and are fixed within a reasonable timeframe. A landlord must also ensure their property meets all of the correct gas and electrical safety regulations.
Responsibility over visitors: It is a tenant’s responsibility to ensure that their household, or visitors to their household behave in a respectful manner. Antisocial behavior could lead to eviction of the tenant.
Gain permission: It is imperative as a tenant that correct permission is sought before making any changes to the property. This is also required if a tenant wishes to run a business from a rented property.
Access: A landlord must leave a tenant to live in their home without interference. A landlord must gain permission to enter the property and may not enter the property without giving the tenant prior notice and arranging a mutually agreeable time.
Moving out: It is the tenant’s responsibility to ensure that the property is returned to its original state. We always recommend having the property professionally cleaned upon exit to ensure that the deposit is returned in full.
The tenant’s belongings should be removed from the property and all that should be left are fixtures and furnishings that were in the property when the tenant moved in.
