Summary of Landlord and Tenant responsibilities and rights
Key to the successful letting of a property is a clear understanding and
communication between the landlord and tenant. For those new to renting
property, outlined below is a brief summary of some key responsibilities and
rights that you should be aware of. More detailed information can be obtained
from the Department of Communities and Local Government (DCLG).
- Repairs for the rental property. The landlord is responsible for repairs
unless the property is let on a fixed term let of 7 years or more.
- Gas and electrical appliances safety for the rental property.
landlord is required to maintain all gas appliances in good order.
landlord is required to ensure that an annual gas safety check is carried
out by a registered with CORGI tradesperson.
The landlord must also
ensure that the electrical system and any electrical appliances that he or
she supplies such as cookers, kettles, toasters, washing machines and
immersion heaters are safe to use.
- Fire safety of furniture and furnishings within the rental property
Unless the property is being let on a temporary basis (i.e. whilst the
landlord is temporarily working away from home) then all furniture and
furnishings (manufactured from 1950 onward) supplied by the landlord must
comply with the fire resistance requirements defined in the Furniture and
Furnishings Fire Safety Regulations 1988.
- Council Tax
The tenancy agreement should set out responsibilities for
paying Council Tax for the property. Normally the tenant is responsible for
paying Council Tax unless the property to rent is a House in Multiple
Occupation (HMO). If there is any doubt as to whether you are responsible
for paying the Council Tax contact your local authority for advice.
- Water and sewerage charges
The tenancy agreement should set out
responsibilities for paying Water and Sewerage charges. Normally the tenant
will be responsible for paying water and sewerage charges unless the
property to rent is a House in Multiple Occupation (HMO). If there is any
doubt to who will be liable for these charges contact the water utility
company for the area.
- Miscellaneous bills
These may include utilities such as gas, electric
and telephone. It is normal for the tenant to be responsible for utility
bills however this should be clarified with the landlord as part of the
- Care of the rental property
The tenant is required to take proper
care of the property and use it in a way that is responsible, to pay the
property rent as agreed, and to follow the terms of the tenancy agreement
unless those terms contravene the tenant?s rights in law.
Landlord and Tenant rights
- Landlord rights of access to the rental property
- The tenancy agreement will normally specify the arrangements for the
landlord or the landlord?s agent to access the property for carrying out
repairs and for periodic inspections. If these are not specified the tenant
should ask fro them to be clarified. It should be noted that that landlord
or landlord?s agent has a legal right to enter the property to carry out
repairs and to inspect the condition of the property with a minimum of 24
hours written notice.
- The tenant has the right to live in the property as their home.
Therefore the landlord should ask for permission before entering the
- The landlord cannot evict the tenant without a possession order from the
- If the landlord sells the freehold of the property the tenant still
retains the right to remain in the property, as the tenancy will be binding
on any purchaser.
- Matters such as whether you can keep pets at the rental property should
be negotiated and included in the terms of the tenancy agreement. It is not
uncommon for landlords to have specific exclusions for pets to be kept at
the property you rent.
- Whilst there are statutory responsibilities and rights that apply to
both the tenant and landlord, it is helpful to include them within the
tenancy agreement for improved clarity of understanding by both parties.
Tenancy agreement, written or verbal?
- A tenancy is a contractual agreement, even if there is no written
agreement. However for the benefit of both landlord and tenant it would help
to prevent misunderstandings if all agreements for the property to let are
made in writing.
