When it comes to the maintenance of commercial property, responsibilities are divided between landlord and tenant according to the lease. It is important that you understand your responsibilities for the repair and maintenance of the building and the premises you are leasing. Tenants are typically responsible for internal repairs and landlord responsible for external repairs and maintenance. In some cases, you will also be responsible for external maintenance as well. This is more likely if you are the sole occupant of a building.
