Tenant Profile Network provides a lease pack that contains the different components that could be needed for a lease. Landlords need to maintain the structure of the property, however the tenant is responsible for maintaining items within the property, to a certain condition. Should the tenant cause any damages, they are liable to fix these. Fair wear and tear falls on the landlord to repair.
