Drains and gutters
- It is the responsibility of the property manager/owner or manager to ensure that the property is in good condition.
- Generally, if a drain or gutter becomes blocked due to fair wear and tear (e.g. due to tree roots blocking a drain), it is the property manager/owner’s responsibility to deal with the problem.
- If a drain becomes blocked due to something the tenant has done (e.g. putting something in the drain), it may be the tenant’s responsibility to pay for fixing the problem.
