The owner should make sure that his property is in good condition and make your life easier. Before occupancy, the tenant usually pays a quarter rent in advance and an additional monthly rent in the form of a deposit (rents are usually paid quarterly). The deposit is refunded if the accommodation is returned at the end of the contract in the original state. My landlord threatens to kick me out of his house because he wonders about irregularities in the water bill? I paid him the rent, deposit and water deposit to, he has the right to do, as he says, the Registered Land Act requires landlords to keep the premises in shape for the dwelling. The Landlords and Tenants Act (Shop, Hotel and Gastronomy) (Cap 301) covers commercial leases, but some of its provisions are sometimes used for residences. The Distress for Rent Act (Cap 293) allows landlords to auction off tenant property for compensation. The Indian Transfer of Property Act requires landlords to disclose defects in the rental unit. The Rent Restriction Act (Cap. 296 of Kenya`s laws) provides rent control for units with monthly rents of no more than KES 2,500 ($34.57) as of January 1, 1981. Typically, these supplements occur when a person renews their lease. A Mamma B in response to the Netizen mail argued that “the owners got into trouble because they harbored criminals or undocumented immigrants. However, there are owners who discriminate on the basis of tribe, marital status, occupation or gender. A tenancy agreement should be designed to create a mutually beneficial relationship to avoid disputes between the tenant and the landlord.

Kenyan law protects tenants, but does not offer limits on a landlord`s request for rental homes. However, the right to privacy under section 31 provides for the right not to disclose information relating to family or private matters unnecessarily. In the event of an emergency, the owner and the owner can access the rental without notice. Otherwise, the owner and landlord are entitled to access the rental property with at least [ADVANCE NOTICE TIME Notice for access to reasonable hours during the day for the following purposes: an annual inspection to check for safety or maintenance issues and assess the general condition of the rental property, make repairs and/or improvements, or show the rental property to potential buyers or tenants.
