Tenancy contracts and agreements are standard in any society, especially concerning rental property matters. The renter and the property owner, or his designated agent, are parties to the tenancy contracts. The law outlines the obligations and liabilities a tenancy agreement’s parties must meet (Mann & Roberts, 2013). The legislation also outlines the rights to which each of the two parties is entitled. The analysis of the rights and obligations, as well as the underlying effects of breaching those responsibilities, is aided by a case study using Roger as a tenant and Larry as a landlord.
Tenants and landlords have legal rights and obligations.
The landlord and the tenant in a tenancy have the legal obligations and rights defined in federal and state legislation. The first of a tenant’s four primary obligations is to pay the agreed-upon rent on time or earlier. The tenant must pay the timing and quantity of rent specified in the leasing agreement. According to the agreed-upon date, the duration could be weekly, monthly, or annual. The second responsibility is maintaining cleanliness and good condition in the apartment or rental property (Mann & Roberts, 2013). The renter ensures that trash does not spread throughout the rental. Third, the tenant is responsible for fixing any damage they caused while occupying the property. Finally, the renter is responsible for informing the landlord of any damages that need to be fixed.
Legally, the tenant has certain rights. First and foremost, he or she has the right to enter and use the rental property. The landlord or other renters should not interfere with the tenant’s enjoyment of the space. Second, if a problem emerges, the tenant has the right to speak with the landlord or the accountable agent at the time deemed reasonable.
