You are about to move into a new property. What are the Landlord’s obligations to prepare it?

If you’re renting residential property the law states that the Landlord needs to make it habitable, nothing more.

There is no legal obligation on the Landlord to clean, repaint or pest-control the Property, but they often at least repaint as a matter of good practise.

If the Property (or part of it) is uninhabitable, or becomes uninhabitable, then you can apply to the Rent Committee to refund or reduce the rent.
