What Are Your Responsibilities During Your Tenants Stay
Obligation to Deliver Possession of Unit
This means having the unit vacant for the tenant on the move-in date that was specified in the lease agreement.
Obligation to Maintain the Unit
A landlord has the responsibility to his or her tenants maintain the property. This includes keeping the property clean, safe and habitable. The landlord must adhere to all building codes, perform necessary repairs, maintain common areas, keep all vital services, such as plumbing, electricity, and heat, in good working order, must provide proper trash receptacles and must supply running water.
Respect Tenant(s) Privacy
California landlords must provide 24 hours’ notice before entering the rental property to make repairs or show the property to prospective tenants (you must give 48 hours for an initial move-out inspection). To avoid problems, include a lease or rental agreement clause that complies with the law and lets the tenant know your right of entry; also, keep written records of your requests to enter rental units.
