As a landlord, what kind of maintenance am I legally responsible for?

It is your legal responsibility to keep the rental unit in good repair. This means the premises must be safe, sanitary and habitable throughout the course of the tenancy. Habitability includes "livable" conditions such as working doors, faucets, toilets and heaters. In other words, the rental unit must remain comfortable to live in.
