Can the landlord or property manager undertake maintenance and repairs?

You should complete a property inspection with your landlord or property manager before you move in and document the findings in your Tenancy Agreement. This will document any existing home damage and help you to avoid any future disputes.

Your landlord must give you at least 24 hours' notice if they require access to your property to carry out maintenance and repairs - unless it is an emergency. If you require urgent repairs but cannot contact your landlord, you are entitled to contact a tradesperson yourself and pass on any reasonable costs.

You should report any rental property maintenance requirements to your landlord or property manager as soon as you notice them.  Failure to notify your landlord or property manager of a serious maintenance issue may see you held responsible for further damage.
