Where rental properties are concerned, the burden of providing sufficient public liability insurance falls solely on the landlord’s shoulders. And, in spite of being watchful, accidents can and do happen. Because of this, it is imperative for landlords to have adequate insurance in place before they put their property on the rental market.

When managing a rental property, you must know how to set your priorities in their proper hierarchy. Among other important things to consider – and one that you should never neglect – is the safety and security of your rental property.
This matter is very important and should be discussed with your property manager as they prepare to take on your property. Their obligations must be made clear in order to ensure that the premises is well taken care of and is safe for the tenants.

How to prove that the premises are water efficient
In the event that a tenant disputes that the property is water efficient, it is strongly recommended that lessors invest in securing a water compliance certificate. This advice is directed mainly to this particular situation. Please be reminded to always make sure that water compliance certificates are updated to ensure that the tenants have not made any changes to it during the tenancy. Although there is really no legal water efficiency requirement, it would be best to have evidence should there be any dispute about the property’s water efficiency. Read more
A common complaint that Property Managers have is not getting a timely response from landlords regarding maintenance of the property they manage. As a result, they are left to face the wrath of unhappy tenants.
There is actually a workaround regarding matters about maintenance and repairs and it is quite surprising that many PMs and landlords are not aware of this — low and behold the Form 6. For those in need of a reminder, the Form 6 (particularly, under Part 8, Section 2) stipulates the maximum value of maintenance and repairs that the agent can spend without prior approval from the landlord.
Who is responsible for the pest control in a rental property? This is the question that usually lingers in the minds of most tenants experiencing issues with pests in their dwelling. Whose obligation is it? The tenant’s or the landlord’s? Unfortunately, the RTA does not specify which party should be responsible for pest control, leaving landlords and tenants with the freedom to reach an agreement about their obligations by themselves or amongst themselves.

In most instances, tenancies run smoothly and people are able to resolve their tenancy issues on their own.
On the other hand, there are certain cases in which the property manager or landlord seeks the help of the RTA to assist them on what to do when their tenants have not fulfilled their obligations and owe them more money than the bond.

Conflicts and disputes between you and your tenants can possibly arise at the end of the tenancy regarding the rental bonds. More than half of the disputes received by the RTA last financial year had been about bond disagreements.
This, however, can be avoided if you take time to get the “vacate inspection” done right. As a landlord, make it your responsibility to reach out and talk with your tenants prior to a vacate inspection. It is best to ensure that your tenant is fully aware of your particular process as agencies have different vacating practices. While you are at it, you also might want to clarify expectations and clarifications before the end of the tenancy.
