What is the landlord's responsibility when it comes to renovations during the term of a lease?
Johnny Ng
During the lease, a landlord's renovation responsibility is based on the terms in the tenancy agreement, and normally includes doors, windows, air-conditioners, water heaters, electrical appliances, plumbing, electrical apparatus, water apparatus, gas apparatus, flooring and any structural parts of the premises.
However, this applies only to circumstances in which damages are caused due to no fault of the tenant. To avoid disputes, both parties should carefully read through the agreement and reach consent on the terms regarding renovation responsibility. Responsible agents such as those at OKAY.com will also provide a photo taking service to record the property's handover condition in order to best protect the interests of both the landlord and tenant.
