As a landlord, it is important for you to understand your rights and responsibilities so that you comply with the associated legislation in your state. If you do not, you may end up facing a hefty fine as a result.

Just some of the Landlord responsibilities include:

  • Maintaining the structure and exterior of the house
  • Ensuring all ‘installations’ are working, such as gas, electricity and heating
  • Installation and appliance maintenance and safety.
  • Treat potentially health-threatening issues such as rising damp and mould
  • Smoke alarm compliancy
  • Anything else that’s stipulated in the tenancy agreement

In addition to these more general landlord responsibilities, each Australian state and territory has its own specific requirements. CLICK HERE for more information to help you understand what the tenancy laws in NSW mean for you.
