Answer . From an insurance perspective the landlord should have coverage on the building and the tenant should have coverage on his/her contents. Legal liability may be a different issue depending on the circumstances of the fire.
Answer . Unless the tenant was involved in the vandalism, the landlord is responsible for the repairs.
Answer . If the tenant made it dirty, he should clean it. If the tenant moves out and leaves it dirty it should be charged against his cle aning deposit. Anything else needs to be spelled out in the rental agreement.

Check your lease since it will state that which specifically applies to you in that lease.
Yes, in case of emergency (flood, etc.). If no emergency, landlord is still entitled to come in just to look around if he gives the tenant 12 hours notice (at least in Florida). Of course,that is not to say the landlord should be popping in every week!
Is the landlord responsible for paying for damages to car paint etching due to a leak in the shared tenant garage?
It'll depend on who "owns" the leak. If it's the other tenant (overflowing sink for instance), then there's your defendent. If it's a broken pipe, it's the owner of the property. The landlord will likely not be personally liable (unless he's also the owner), but will act as owner's representitive. (…Or you can subpeona the owner :} ). You're almost certainly going to wind up in court over this one though, so prepare. (MORE)
Is a landlord responsible US for fire damage to tenants property if the landlord indicated he had insurance for that building verbally?
Was the tenant's property attached to the building, such as signs, wall to wall carpet, etc.? Because building insurance typically does not include contents of others but can include permanently installed Tenant's Improvements and Betterments.

Well, what do you mean by Landlord Insurance? There is property insurance and Tenant or Renter's Insurance. The former covers any damage to the property by a storm, fire, burglary, etc., but not anything inside the unit, meaning, anything owned by the tenant. That's what Tenant insurance is for.. T…enant insurance covers any property of the Tenant, in and out of the home (out of the home is generally covered by only 10 %); property damage by the Tenant, either while living there or upon moveout; and medical care of up to about $1,000 to anyone who gets hurt in your home. It also covers loss of use of the home to a certain amount, which helps you with lodging and moving costs should you need to stay out of the home. (MORE)
I think yes, it is a maintenance issue/major health concern within the building/unit ! The landlord should make sure all units are infestation safe proof, and have an exterminator at hand. If an outbreak happens to occur, the landlord should fix all units just to be safe as well.
US state laws vary. If the injury was caused by something that the landlord was required to maintain/install/repair then in most cases, they will be held responsible. Example: State and federal law require buildings to have safety rail on both sides of staircases. If a tenant slips in a bathtub of r…olls out of bed, a court will have to decide. (MORE)
If the damage was not done by you or someone you know and you file a police report then the landlords insurance should cover it. But he may not want to claim it. If he dont want his rates to go up. Or he may raise your rent. His insurance only covers the building. you mite want to get renters insura…nce to cover your personal property for damage or loss. (MORE)
No , because the new tenant(s) are under a new contract i.e. lease agreement . Your contract ended at the end of your lease . If you sublet your apartment then yes you have a contractual obligation .
Depending on where you live your landlord may have to give you a certain number of days notice before you are required to leave the premises (unless you are putting yourself or someone else in danger). Until then, you are not the old tenant, but the current tenant and your rented property can not be… handed over to another party. (MORE)
In the past, we would have said no. But, a recent Massachusetts case ruled that the landlord was liable for a vicious dog owned by the tenant who he knew was dangerous.
Any damages caused to a building which is under lease and which are directly caused by the tenant are normally deducted from the bond if necessary. Otherwise, the tenant is responsible for paying for the repairs, but it is the landlord/homeowner who must get the repairs done (they then pass the bill… on). (MORE)
I meet a lot of landlords who think they should have a key. I don't know why they need one. The landlord should never be entering the unit without the tenant's permission, and, preferably, with the tenant there. Some say that they should have a key in case of an emergency. But, if there is a fire, y…ou should be calling 911. If there is a flood, like from a broken pipe, I would still call 911. I know of no law that entitles a landlord to a key. Answer Call 911 and wait for the police to respond if the toilet is overflowing in the apartment above you and the occupant isn't home? You've got to be kidding! Seriously, in some jurisdictions the landlord is required by law to have a key to rented premises for emergency purposes. In some jurisdictions, the landlord is entitled to have a key to any door that can be locked. Some rental agreements cover that issue in the agreement. In some areas the landlord keeps the key in a sealed container so the apartment owner can check periodically and verify the key hasn't been used without their knowledge. You should contact a landlord/tenant agency in your area to determine the local rules and laws. There are certain general rules that restrict a landlord from entering your rented dwelling: (a) It's okay if you are home and allow them to enter; (b) They can enter if there is an emergency and they need to enter to resolve that emergency; or (c) They give you at least 24 hours' written notice when there is no emergency.

Usually bed bug treatment is the responsibility of landlord but itmight vary from country to country.

Utilties control apartments can the landlord not turn on the air condition cause tenants are late on there rent?
I don't know of a state that requires a landlord to provide air conditioning. I'm in Massachusetts, which, like most states has laws about heat, but not A/C. So, this wouldn't violate any sanitary code. It might be a breach of contract, but, then, if you didn't pay your rent, that goes both ways.
It depends on two things..which can vary from state to state 1.The landlord tenant laws in your state... 2. The lease agreement. Some States require that the landlord be responsible for all forms of pest control (ie) roaches,rats,mice,bees,bed bugs,ants,spiders,ect ect.. Some States only require th…e landlord to insure that a rental unit is free from all pests before renting the unit and then any further pest control is the responsibility of the tenant... Lease agreements can also have stipulations for pest control as well according to the laws of the state....(ie) A landlord may be responsible for the control of mice,rats and termites but may not be responsible for roaches,bed bugs and ants... So check your lease and the laws of your state.... (MORE)

If the tenant damaged them, then it's the tenants fault. Ifit was the landlord, then it's their fault
Whom ever started the fire is responsible for it. If it was caused by cooking than it would be the tenant, and the tenant would be held liable, obviously. If it was something more comples like faulty wiring for example it would be a bit trickier and it would depend on a few circumstances to ge…t to the bottom of it. For instance: . If there was a damaged wire that caused a fire and it was reported to the landlord of any abnormal signs that it was acting peculiar prior to the fire and the landlord never came to fix it. Than it would be on the landlord. . If there was no notification to the landlord of the peculiar outlet or wire and after an investigation it comes out that the tenant was aware it was acting up and was given ample time to alert the landlord, the tenant is liable. . If nither parties were aware of the fault and it was confirmed after an investigation, than the landlord is liable (it's their building after all). . If it was an old apartment building and the tenant was advised not to run too many appliances off the same line and it shorted causing a fire after ignoring the instructions than the tenant would have been at fault and would be held responsible. -- Note -- The landlord would be utilmately responsible in this instance as the wiring would not have been up to code, a responsibility the landlord lawfully has. . If it was an act of God and lightning struck the buillding causing a fire, that's why we have insurance. Important Insurance Awareness: . The property insurance would only cover the cost for the landlord. The tenant would have to have had their own renter's insurance in most cases to be compinsated for any damage to their belongings. The Lease:(in my experience)[of course it all depends on how you and the other party write up the lease] . In the case that it's the tenant's fault, more often than not it would be a condition in the breaking of the lease by the tenant which carries a heavy fee. . In the case it's the landlord's fault, the tenant is released from the lease or the tenant CAN transfer to available housing if they so choose. . In the case it was nature/arson by another party unassociated with either party. If housing is available the lease will transfer otherwise the tenant would be released. (MORE)
A tenant! If they damaged something they don't own they are responsible for fixing it.
Unless the tenant engaged in a reckless behavior that encouragedthe burglary (like placing a sign in the front yard that reads"Leaving out of town, no alarm system, back doors unlocked, pleaseburglarize it"), no person bares responsibility for the criminalactions of a third person. It's not the tena…nts fault that PersonX, a career criminal, decided to victimize them. The landlord is typically responsible for any damages to thestructure (via home-owners insurance) and the tenant responsiblefor any stolen property (via renters insurance). Until such time asthe burglar is caught and restitution is demanded. (MORE)
Is your landlord responsible for damage to your personal property if the damage is caused by excess snow on the roof?
Unfortunately, landlords are not responsible for any one's personal property, unless you can prove negligence on the landlord sparked, which would have contributed to the damage to the property this is something that would be argued in court your best bet is to get renters insurance
No, not always. In cases of emergency (fire, major water leak), they may enter without delay. More generally, however, the landlord is required to give notice, e.g. 24 hours, and to enter during "normal business hours", e.g. 8AM-5PM. They would need permission otherwise but a tenant can't ref…use a justifiable entry such as coming in for scheduled maintenance or showing the apartment when the tenant is leaving or being evicted. (MORE)
absolutely not!!! Unless you have a court order and police escort. If you do (or did) the tenants can bring criminal charges against you. If they report a theft or break-in and they find out you've even thought or asked this, the finger will go to you and they have proof. You can't erase this messag…e. Quite possible they could sue (all your tenants could because you didn't specify whom or where) just for the inquiry for invasion of privacy. (MORE)
Neither, the criminal is. Well, you knew that and it wasn't the answer you were looking for so... I'm no lawyer but... Unless the landlord or tenant was somehow negligent, they are each likely responsible for their own losses. By that I mean if the thief broke through a window and stole a T…V, the landlord should repair and clean up the window and the tenant should go buy a new TV. As for negligence, let's say there was a locking gate that broke and the landlord just wouldn't fix. If the thief got in that was and could not have before it broke, that's negligence on the part of the landlord. If, for example, the tenant left that gate unlocked, then maybe they are negligent.

Appliances that are furnished by landlord are their responsibility to repair. If it has been found that the tenant damaged such appliance, the landlord may recover such damage. If the appliance was furnished by the tenant in the first place, then he is responsible for the repair. In the case of cert…ain changeable parts, for example, a toilet seat or the dripping pan on the stove, those parts of the responsibility of the tenant. (MORE)
The landlord is generally only responsible for the building, not the belongings inside. That's what renter's insurance is for.
That would depend on who's angry wife your talking about. If the tenants wife damages your property or your landlords property then the tenants wife is liable for those damages. Due to the extension of common law you can also be held financially liable for actions of your spouse. The landlord wou…ld have no control over the tenants wife nor her actions and could not be held liable. If the Landlords wife came over and damaged your property or the landlords property then the Landlord and or the landlord wife would be financially liable. (MORE)
In the U.K., barring emergency, a landlord is required to give a tenant 24hrs notice before entering a property. This includes cases of forced eviction. Immediate emergency entry is permitted in cases such as flooding, leaks, etc. where either the tenant is not present or where the tenant may be u…naware but it is effecting another property. (MORE)
I can't answer definitely without more information. Basically, if the tenant did something wrong, then the landlord may very well be in a position to sue to be compensated for this wrong.
In California, the landlord must provide copies of receipts if withholding money from the security deposit, I believe. The tenant must ask for them, they aren't automatically offered. Other states probably have similar laws. Check with your local Housing Authority.
The answer should be in your lease. Can't find it there? Ask a lawyer to help. With a mutual agreement, the lease can be amended.
The natural demise of the lease is grounds for eviction. The process varies by state.
Generally, if it's an attached apartment setting then the landlord is responsible for extermination. In a single-family setting or a duplex, it is the tenants responsibility.
if a tenant in a rental apartment encounters a bug infestation in the apartment does the landlord or is the landlord responsible for exterminating the apartment and or are they responsible to replace any kind of furniture or carpeting that needs to be thrown away due to the bug infestation?
Yes, the landlord is responsible. But keep in mind that this is not a landlord/tenant issue: it's a small claims issue. So this is heard in a small claims court inquired, not a landlord/tenant court.
Yes, any labour done can be charged regardless of the name of the person doing the labour, just because he didn't hire someone does not mean the work has no cost or value.
I'm no lawyer but... This definitely sounds like a responsibility of the owner. Unless the tenant agreed in the leasing contract to pay this, then they don't.
Who is responsibility is it to provide fire extinguishers in a residential rental property the landlord or the tenant?
I would say the landlord because they would want their tenants to be safe from any danger. Also what if the tenant doesn't bring and fire extinguishers......I would say the landlord. It's a matter of opinion.
A landlord must notify a tenant at least 24 hours in advance of any work that is about to be done on the property. It should be done in writing.
Yes there is a limit in Michigan. Typically it will be three years from the last action.
