What Are Your Key Liabilities as a Landlord?
As a landlord, you are responsible for your tenants’ safety. In addition to offering a well-maintained property, the law requires you to protect your tenants from certain hazards. This means you must offer your tenant the right to quiet enjoyment of the property, prevent any tenant injuries, handle environmental problems, disclose relevant details about your property, keep tenants safe from crime, and provide basic security services.
