SHARED LIVING RIGHTS

Yes No

In shared living arrangements where landlords and tenants share living space like kitchen or bathroom, the rights and responsibilities can vary depending on the specific terms of the rental agreement and the laws and regulations in the jurisdiction where the arrangement takes place.

These shared living arrangements might be as simple as several tenants sharing a single rental unit or a landlord renting out a room in their own house. Landlords and tenants should take into account the following main factors when it comes to shared living rights.

Concerning Landlords:

Right to Access Common parts: Usually, landlords are allowed to enter common parts of the building (such as shared kitchens, living rooms, and corridors) without giving prior notice. To access a tenant’s private living area, they often must give a sufficient amount of warning.

Landlords bear the responsibility for upkeep of the common areas and guaranteeing their safety and livability for every renter.

Lease Agreement: It is recommended that landlords own a well-defined lease agreement that delineates the terms and conditions of the cohabitation.
