As a tenant, you have certain responsibilities, most of which should be stated in your tenancy agreement. 

The list below gives an idea of the main things you need to be aware of:

  • How to make a complaint about repairs
  • You must pay your rent and bills when they are due; 
  • You must report repairs to your landlord / agent as soon as possible; 
  • You must not deliberately cause any damage; 
  • You must not carry out any changes or decorate without your landlord's / agent's permission (it's best to get this in writing).  If you do cause any damage to the property the landlord / agent is likely to withhold money from your deposit to cover the cost of putting this right. 
  • You may also be responsible for the maintenance of the garden if you have one.  Check your tenancy agreement to see whose responsibility this is. 
  • You are responsible for the behaviour of any guests you have, so you must make sure that they do not breach any of the terms of your tenancy agreement. 
  • Follow any other reasonable conditions as mentioned in your tenancy agreement; for example, not keeping pets and not allowing anyone else to live in the property without your landlord's / agent's written permission.  If your landlord / agent does agree that someone else can live in your property with you and you are claiming Housing Benefit this may affect your entitlement. 
  • You should co-operate with your landlord / agent if they give you reasonable notice that they wish to visit to inspect the premises/facilities. 
  • Be considerate of your neighbours.
