by August 6, 2015 Responsibility


Apartments are like the homes of tenants. Therefore, a lot of responsibility comes at the tenants for taking care of the apartments. It is not only the social but also moral duty of tenants to take care of apartments and its belongings although they are paying the rent, but still it their duty to take care while using the items present in the apartments with care and attention. Many times people pay the rent or hire the apartment there is an agreement between both parties about the condition, cleaning and items present in the apartment. Both parties are, therefore, responsible for following the rules of the agreement equally.

Generally tenants when come to an apartment based in Dallas and start living in it they are conscious about the condition of apartment and if it furnished ones they have to see and maintain the condition of items present in the apartment. When they leave the apartment they do not take care whether they have properly cleaned it before they leave, or they have fixed the issues with objects like ovens, beds or others. It is their responsibility to look after these things like an electricity item should be used properly and if something goes wrong it should be maintained by the tenants rather than leaving it to the owner to solve the issue.

Paint is normally done by the owners when they give the apartment for rent to the tenants. Now, it is the responsibility of tenant to have great care for the paint from damaging, getting discolor and getting faint. Keep the paint save from other color spots and lines so that the look of the apartment would be like the new one. However, for the tenants who stay for a long time the responsibility of paint can be divided or assigned to each other by mutual understanding after regular intervals. The mopping should be regularly done and when the tenants leave the apartments they should do the final cleaning with great attention so that no garbage or waste products would be left behind.

The things like beds, chairs or dining tables would be kept in good condition. The paint of these things would be properly done and their dusting should be done regularly so that they might look like new ones rather than looking old or bad ones. Things should be kept from getting dirty and mirrors of windows and showcases should be cleaned regularly. Is any of the object got missing it is the responsibility of tenant to completely fulfill it and bring the new ones or find the old one as owner should be provided with complete objects. Owners also like those tenants that are decent and love cleanliness while the avoid giving apartment at rent to those people who are dirty and unaware of the cleaning processes and misuse the apartments and its belongings. Therefore, prove yourselves good people and good tenants whereas avoid the poor handling of objects in the apartments.
