What is Housing Maintenance?

Housing maintenance is essentially a list of tasks that you need to do in order for your property or rental to be a safe and comfortable living space for its occupants.

As a landlord, it will be your responsibility to maintain your property so that it is in good repair, complies with healthy and safety laws, and is fit to live in. This can be done through routine checks, replacements and upgrades. 

As a tenant in a rented property, you are responsible for the basic upkeep of the space, making sure it’s clean and in good condition. It’s not advisable to attempt any serious repairs or fixes yourself as a tenant.

Minimum renting standards differ by state, so it’s always best to read up on which apply to you if you live in QLD, VIC or NSW.
