#Water Crisis Update:The tenant-landlord relationship, what's legal, what's not?

Speaking to Kieno Kammies, Caleb Jones from Norton Rose Fullbright, explains the different leases that bind both tenants and landlords during the water crises.

Jones said both tenants and landlords should familiarise themselves with their lease and if a tenant uses more water than the allocated 50 litres per day, most leases do have a clause that protects them.

The lease will in broad terms have a clause which states that the tenant must use the property in a lawful manner and comply with all the by-laws, and 50 litres per day is a by-law and a tenant would have to comply.

Jones said there are other clauses that both tenant and landlord need in order to make their relationship work better during the water crises.
