The sublease agreement sample Ontario template specifies who pays for routine and non-routine maintenance in this section. You can also include a provision for emergency repair.
The Sublandlord shall ensure that the residential complex, including the rental unit, is maintained in a good state of repair and fit for habitation, in compliance with all health, safety, housing, and maintenance standards as required by applicable laws and regulations in the province of Ontario.
In the event that any item or component within the rental unit, including but not limited to appliances, fixtures, or systems, ceases to function properly due to normal wear and tear or a breakdown or natural wear and tear, the Sublandlord shall promptly repair or replace it as necessary to restore it to proper working condition, at no additional cost to the Subtenant.
The Subtenant shall maintain the general cleanliness of the rental unit unless otherwise stipulated in the tenancy agreement, in which case, the Sublandlord shall be responsible for cleaning as per the terms of the agreement.
The Subtenant shall be responsible for any undue damage to the rental property that they directly caused or that is not attributable to normal wear and tear. The Subtenant shall promptly inform the Sublandlord of such damage and, at the Sublandlord's discretion, either make arrangements for the repair at their own expense or reimburse the Sublandlord for the cost of repairs.
Reporting Maintenance Issues
The Subtenant shall promptly notify the Sublandlord of any necessary repairs or maintenance issues within the rental unit, including those related to items and components that are the Sublandlord's responsibility as outlined in this agreement.
The Sublandlord agrees to respond to maintenance and repair requests in a reasonable and timely manner, ensuring that repairs are conducted as needed to maintain the rental unit in good condition.
In the event of an emergency that requires immediate repair, the Subtenant shall notify the Sublandlord as soon as possible. If the Sublandlord is unavailable or unresponsive, the Subtenant may take reasonable steps to address the emergency repair, and the Sublandlord shall be promptly informed of any actions taken.
