  • Tribunal divvies up blame in maintenance ruling

    A lot of maintenance issues raised by the tenant at the end of a tenancy. Nothing to do with the thousands in rent arrears I am sure.

    Not sure I would engage the tenant for his day job as insulation installer as he couldn't manage to provide proof of the current state of insulation. Landlord still got pinged for no insulation statement.

    ^^ good find Artemis.


    In fact, the two actually had an arrangement that the rent would stay low in exchange for the tenant doing some small items of maintenance.

    However, there were some issues with the property which were not properly addressed by Hayes and Wanden alleged these cost him – largely due to excessively high power bills caused by wiring and damp problems.

    Landlords - don't fall for it! Do the maintenance and charge market rent - always!

    Tenants are not your mates. You're running a business. Nothing gets down on a handshake. Provide decent accommodation, look after it (if you can not - use a property manager) and charge market rent.

    cheers,

    Donna
