There are certain rights and obligations that both landlords and tenants should be familiar with to ensure a hassle free tenancy.

A key to a successful tenancy for both the landlord and the tenant comes down to communication and understanding exactly what each party’s rights and obligations.


It is the property manager’s role to equip landlords and tenants with the information they need in order to do so.

  • Reasonable notice should be given to tenants for access to the property
  • Ensure individual window locks and electrical safety switches are installed and
  • Landlords need to understand the rights of tenants in regards to ending a tenancy and follow the proper processes and protocols


Landlords like to have tenants who pay rent on time, promptly advise the property manager if there is a problem and look after the property as if it was their own.
