Before a tenant moves in, there is usually an understanding–either written in the lease agreement or through oral communication–about who will be responsible for cleaning, repairs, and property maintenance.
As agreed upon, the person responsible for paying (landlord or tenant) will have to cover the charges/expenses that come up from time to time. It is usually the Tenant’s responsibility, but the Landlord can check in on the situation periodically.
To make your life stress-free, here are some templates for landlords requesting repairs or maintenance
from their tenants.
