Q.Tenants responsibilities
I am about to rent my home and I would like to include in the tenancy agreement that the tenant is responsible for the maintenance of the house, meaning responsible for water pump maintenance or repair, any leakage, garden maintenance...
Am I legally allowed to do so?
If not, what maintenance responsibility has my tenant got?

Thanks for your advice.
Ash

A. ) Dear Sir,
Everything is legal as it is mutual between you and your tenant, provided he accepts.

A. ) in space of above, you can add in the agreement that "the landlord will claim amount incurred on maintenance like leakage, garden, Etc. from the tenant"

A. ) Dear Client,
The property maintenance is usually the responsibility of the owner and not the tenant. Kindly have a talk with your tenant and make the agreement. If he agrees with such a clause then you can surely include that in your agreement.
Thanks.

A. ) Dear Sir,
It all depends upon your comforts and normally the tenants have the following rights.

============================================================================================
Ordinarily, if your landlord sells the rental property where you live, your lease doesn't end (or “terminate”). Rather, the buyer of the property becomes your new landlord and must comply with both the length and terms of the existing lease.
Likewise, you remain bound by the lease and must perform all your obligations and duties under it, such as paying rent, keeping the premises clean, and not destroying or damaging the property.
If you don’t pay the rent or otherwise comply with the lease terms, the new landlord is entitled to the same remedies that the old landlord (the property seller) had against you. This means the new owner can try to collect whatever you owe or could begin eviction proceedings, just as the old landlord could have.

Thanks.

A. ) Sir,
there is no such problem. You can include such a clause in your agreement. It shall fall under the duty of the tenant to maintain whatever you add in the clause and pay you a fixed sum of rent as agreed upon.
Thanks.
