A tenant is required by law to inform the landlord about the need for repairs when they arise. Landlords cannot be held liable for repairs that are not reported by the tenant. A tenant can only do repairs if the tenancy agreement allows for it and cannot be made to do repairs that the landlord should do. Tenants are required to:
- Keep the property in good condition, neat, and well maintained.
- Avoid damages resulting from negligence.
- Carry out small maintenance repairs on the property.
- Give access to the landlord for repair purposes.
