As a landlord, there are many things for which you are responsible. Those things include:
- Providing adequate weatherproofing
- Adequate utility services
- A clean, sanitary, and structurally safe premise
There are items for which a landlord is not responsible. This would include damage caused by a tenant. When damage is caused by a tenant, the landlord may have the repair made and then send the bill to the tenant to pay.
As a landlord, it is important to have a written lease for your tenant to sign. Creating an appropriate lease is not always an easy task. Certain things need to be in a lease to protect you, your home as well as the tenant.
In preparing an appropriate and legally binding lease, it is important to consider seeking advice from an attorney having extensive experience in that field. Simon Law can provide you with the assistance needed to address both landlord and tenant concerns.
