Much of BC’s rental housing was built a long time ago and is now in need on ongoing maintenance. This section will discuss tenants’ and landlords’ rights and responsibilities for repairing rental properties. When something breaks during a tenancy, who is responsible for fixing it? This section will also cover the difference between essential and non-essential services, and whether a landlord has the right to take these away.
