What are the interior repairs payable by the tenant?
From the ground to the ceiling
Inside the home, the tenant must keep all the rooms and equipment in perfect condition. And this does not concern a simple disgorging of a siphon or the replacement of a bulb, far from it! From floor to ceiling, via the walls, the tenant must ensure its cleanliness and sustainability. For example, he is asked to re-glue a tapestry or to put back a little paint when it deteriorates. The installation of paintings or mirrors sometimes causes small damage. The owner can then ask the tenant to fill in any holes.
The good condition of the floors (parquet, carpets, linoleum) should not be neglected either. The tenant will ensure the parquet or the replacement of some parquet strips. The joinery (strips, moldings) must also maintain.
Plumbing and electrical are the areas that can cause a lot of litigation between landlords and tenants. It is sometimes necessary to seek the advice of a plumber or an electrician to determine the nature of the part and its degradation (wear or misuse).
Regarding heating and hot water, the legislation stipulates a certain number of parts to be replaced in the event of even involuntary degradation: bimetallic strips, pistons, membranes, water boxes, ignition, valves. On the other hand, the tenant will avoid, for example, calling the owner for the clogging of a siphon of the sink which is due, in general, to the daily use of the tenant. It is, therefore, necessary to distinguish between the “real” repair work and the little hassles of everyday life. In addition, it may be necessary to replace gas line pipes. Even if this happens quite rarely, some DIY notions will sometimes be necessary.
In electricity, the tenant has the duty to ensure the good condition of the electrical devices. In particular, it is up to him to replace the fuses or defective bulbs that the owner leaves in place when the inventory takes. He may also have to repair a worn electrical switch.
Finally, the owner sometimes makes several items of equipment mentioned in the rental contract available to the tenant. Refrigerator, washing machine, extractor hoods … The law imposes maintenance and minor repairs (replacement of gasket, fixing collar …) on the tenant.
