Maintenance and Repair Costs

1 min. readlast update: 12.28.2023

The owner of your selected property will be responsible for covering maintenance and repair costs during your tenancy under typical RTA lease agreement arrangements. The owner will also be obligated to keep the property insured.

If you are selecting a pre-existing property, before you make an offer, you will have several opportunities to inspect the home and identify any defects. PublicSquare will also engage a qualified building and pest inspector to attend to the property, and we will provide that report to you before you commit to the deal. 

If significant repairs are needed in the first few years, you can choose a different property or if you think it's manageable, you discuss the matter with PubicSquare to determine how these costs might be dealt with between the parties.
