Responsibilities

When you move out of home into your own place, you need to think about the things you have to do yourself from now on.

Things like:

  • Paying the rent
  • Paying bills when they are due
  • Keeping your home tidy
  • Putting the rubbish out on time
  • Reporting any damages or problems
  • Respecting your housemates / neighbours
  • Sticking to house rules (eg no pets or no smoking)
  • Being responsible for the behaviour of your friends when they visit

If you forget to do some of these things, you could be at risk of eviction.

Sections 5.6 and 5.7 in the Housemate Pack have more about tenants and landlords’ rights and responsibilities.
