Implemented in 1954 Landlord Tenant Act illustrates the rights of the renter and the house owner. Categorized into two broad sub divisions, Residential Landlord Tenant Act and Mobile Landlord Tenant Act, the act doesn't make room for all property owners though.
According to the Landlord Tenant Act , the tenants are required to take up the following:
Be punctual about paying rent and other payments as agreed.
Strictly follow and fulfill the needs of city, county or state regulations.
Maintain health and hygiene in the dwelling place.
Get rid of garbage from the rental unit.
Bear the cost of sprays and the likes needed for killing pests.
Handle and operate plumbing, electrical and heating tools with care.
Make sure not to mutilate the occupied place in any way.
Make sure while leaving that the physical condition of the unit is the same as it was when entering.
Landlord Tenant Act also restricts the property owner from avoiding certain basic responsibilities while renting the place:
Make the property habitable with proper fittings and gadgets.
Ensure proper locking systems.
Make arrangements for uninterrupted supply of water, electricity and heat.
Provide garbage disposal ways.
Make the rental unit free of pest infection, before the occupants move in.
Provide fully operational smoke detector.
Provide with a valid written rental agreement.
The property owner is free to visit his property anytime during the stay of the tenants, according to the Landlord Tenant Act. However, in the best interest of both the parties, a minimum notice period of 48 hours is required in such a case from the property owner's end.
