Request for tenancy documents
One of the tenants of a “joint and several” tenancy defaulted on his rental arrears. We therefore started to pursue the remaining tenants. After the end of the tenancy, we served a Notice of Intent and a couple of the tenants their share of the arrears (1/7th), although I understand they are jointly and severally liable. The lead tenant and his guarantor however decided to make a counter claim. They made a claim of Disrepair for the issues they experienced during the tenancy (we believe they were all resolved in a timely manner), including some issues they didn’t report during the tenancy. They have requested the following documents:
- the tenancy file
- documents relating to notice given, disrepair reports, inspection reports or repair works to the above named property
- computerised records
We have all of the information on our system for internal use but it would be a lot of work to compile it in a format to give to them for the full year of the tenancy. Are we required to provide all of these information to the tenants?
