Normal wear and tear covers the natural age changes that occur over time. It can be anything from wooden floors becoming less smooth, to walls becoming less bright after many years of washing dishes or dust. Ordinary signs of normal wear and tear are not something that the tenant has to pay for when they move out.

Find out what is considered normal wear and tear in your rental property

Rental properties, leases and apartments usually experience some form of wear and tear over time, and it can be difficult to determine when it is normal wear and tear and when it is a breach of contract. Normal wear and tear is something that occurs naturally over time, while default occurs when the tenant does not take proper care of the property.

But what exactly is normal wear and tear, and when can you claim refurbishing for it? It is important to understand that normal wear and tear varies depending on the rental property's age, quality, use and number of users.

For example, normal wear and tear of an old tenancy that has been occupied by many people over a long period of time will be more pronounced than normal wear and tear in a newer tenancy occupied by a single person.

Avoid serious mistakes by understanding normal wear and tear

So how do you determine what is normal wear and tear? First of all, you have to look at the age of the rental property. The older the home, the more wear and tear you can expect. Next, you should consider how many people have lived in the home, as well as how the home has been used.

It is also important to be aware that even though some items may be normal wear and tear, it may still be the tenant's responsibility to pay for the repairs. For example, if a door or window does not close properly due to wear and tear, it may still be the tenant's responsibility to pay for the repairs. However, it always depends on what is agreed in the lease.
