Question 7

What Are My Responsibilities As a Landlord?

As a landlord, you have certain moral and legal responsibilities to your tenants, your property, and any prospective tenants who may be interested in your property.

These are the official legal terms covering your responsibilities as a landlord. Although one of our property managers will guide you through them, it’s advised that you take the time to understand them yourself.

The Residential Tenancies Amendment Act 2018 came into effect on the 29th of March 2021.  This involved over 130 changes to the Residential Tenancies Act 2017. There are many changes that our Property Managers are highly trained in, some of which are new minimum standards for rental properties, gas & electrical safety checks and lease terms.  It has never been more important to have an experienced Property Manager, manage your asset.
