Maintenance and Repair
Who is responsible for the repairs around the property?
Despite what an agreement was and is between the landlord and the tenant, whether there was an agreement for the tenant to clear the snow, cut the grass and do all the repairs around the unit/property, the landlord is responsible to maintain the property in a good state of repair. The tenant is responsible for upkeeping the unit clean to the standards that most people consider ordinary and normal cleanliness. If the tenant or the guest of the tenants have caused damage to the rental property, they are responsible for the repair.
