Hi there, thanks for writing to us on AskGuru.

A landlord is bounded by the following covenants to a tenant:
1. Quiet enjoyment of the premises, which means tenant can enjoy the use of the premises without interference.
2. Non-derogation from the grant, landlord must observe all the terms granted to tenant.
3. Property must be fit for habitation at the start of the lease term;
4. Structure and facilities must be in good repair.
5. Good title. He is the owner and has the right to rent.
6. Pay property tax and quit rent if any
7. Exclusive possession of the premises for the fixed term, so long as the fixed term given has not expired.
8. If landlord has sold or transferred his interest, buyer or successor-in-title is bound to observe the terms of the lease granted

Under points 3, as long as the property is fit for habitation, the tenant has no legal grounds to take action against you.

Hope this answers your question.

Best Regards,

Hi, when it comes to inventory list in the unit. It is always negotiable between both the tenant and the landlord and there is no right or wrong.
