By Albert Sperk

property rentingHave you ever thought about the amount of care you should be giving to your rental property? Of course, as a good tenant you'll be treating your property rentals with respect while not doing damage. There are however, numerous 'gray areas' renters find themselves in regarding the rights and responsibilities associated with renting. For the renter their main protection is the renter agreement and can take many forms. These agreements follow a common Performa but may vary in content.

Most of these can be resolved by carefully reading your rental agreement and gaining a great deal of insight. The first would be to treat your rental unit as you would your own home. Treating a rental home as if it were your own would solve many of the problems associated with renting. It's prudent that you care for the rental property by doing routine repairs as they arise.
This is a good premise but in many cases, the rental agreement will not allow renters to treat real estate with standard repairs. Renters do not have this alternative of making changes or repairs that are permitted under the terms of the rental contract agreement. Even so, these changes are usually insignificant. For the routine repairs that require further work, seek assistance from your property manager.

Many of the more extensive repairs and changes enquire assistance from the realty manager of the property owner or manager. Many of those routine repairs include items such as unclogging drains, repairing appliances, and changes to the residence such as installing new lighting features. There are reports of qualified tradesman being told they can't alter or repair home they're renting. The renter may be capable of performing repairs. The rental agreement may specify that the property owner or manager must perform these items.

Under these agreements, renters who attempt these repairs might be held liable for damages. On the other hand, repairs and other alterations to the unit may have certain jobs left out of the rental agreement could mean that the renter may be responsible for small repair items like changing light bulbs, or similar repairs. In such circumstances, the renter is free to make the improvements or repairs.

However, the apartment manager can handle complaints. If, conversely, renters encounter a difficulty where the apartment manager has not fulfilled his or her obligations, the renter may have to bring this to the attention of the agency management. When a real estate manager is required to make repairs and change the necessary attributes. Not only does this create a living hazard for the renter, it also creates a problem for the members of the rental community. Through all of these circumstances, the rent should be paid holding the renters lease in place.
