Tenant's guide - repairing and insuring lease obligations

A lease is a legally binding contract defining the responsibilities and obligations on both you, the tenant, and Fife Council as the landlord.

This guide is intended to explain the principal lease obligations in plain terms. However, you should always refer to your lease for the details on any given obligation. Tenants should seek their own independent legal advice before entering into a lease, in order to fully understand their legal obligations.

Areas of responsibility

Please note, current legislation should always be checked at the date of requirement.
