    Who is responsible for maintaining a rental unit (apartment)?
    Notice: Undefined property: stdClass::$post_date in /var/www/webapp/ui/mlb_faq.php on line 96

    Under Ontario Law, it is the responsibility of the landlord to maintain the unit. The landlord has to ensure that it is in good condition. This applies regardless of whether the tenant knew about the problems prior to moving in, or whether the landlord puts into the lease contract that the tenant is responsible for maintenance. The tenant is, however, responsible for keeping the apartment clean and not cause any damage to it.
