Most of the above “Not a Habitability Issue” items are covered by the tenant through the Minor Repairs Addendum. Be sure to point out items of concern at the next property visit or bring them up at lease renewal time. These items may or may not be approved for repair by the owner. Feel free to ask for details if unsure of what is covered.
Damages caused by abuse or misuse will be charged back to the tenant. We will rely on the servicing contractor to tell us what caused the problem. If plumbing gets clogged due to items dropped in the toilet (toys, brushes, diapers, napkins, personal items or feminine products), the cost of the plumber will be the tenant’s responsibility. This is not considered equipment failure. Unless the contractor can prove it was not caused by the tenant (i.e. roots in system, pipe collapsed, septic tank backup), we assume it was caused by neglect, not by a defect of the property. Clogged plumbing is the tenant’s responsibility.
