Tenant Responsibility

Clean & Maintain

Duties of the tenant include using the property only as a dwelling; paying the rent, keeping the property reasonably clean and maintained, and, at the end of the rental term, to return the property to the landlord in the same condition in which the tenant received it, except for ordinary wear and tear.


  • You can use the property only as a home.
  • You must keep the property reasonably clean.
  • All maintenance requests must be submitted in writing.
  • You may not tamper with the smoke alarms or damage the property. 
  • You are responsible for the cost of replacing batteries in smoke alarms in the rental unit as needed. You are also responsible for checking the alarms every six months to ensure they work.
  • You must behave in a manner that will not disturb your neighbors.
  • You must pay your rent on time.
  • At the end of the rental arrangement, you must return the property to your landlord in the same condition in which you received it except for reasonable wear and tear.
  • If you cause serious harm to your landlord or their property or to other people on the rental property, or you have committed outrageous acts there, your landlord can give you a 24-hour written notice to leave. This notice must tell you why you are being evicted.
