Breakages and Accidental Damage
Tenants are responsible for any damage to the property if they damage something accidentally, intentionally, or through negligence. Tenants are also responsible for any damage done by their visitors or co-tenants.
Tenants can also be required to cover the cost of tradespeople if they reported something as broken when it wasn’t.
Common examples are:
– the oven won’t turn on because the oven timer had been turned,
– an air conditioner isn’t cooling because the filters haven’t been cleaned,
– a power outage that is traced back to a fault in the tenant’s appliance
