It is the duty of all residents of a HMO to ensure that the landlord or their managing agent can effectively carry out their duties. All residents must:
allow the manager access, at all reasonable times, to any occupied room, so he/she may carry out his/her duties
provide the manager on request with any relevant information
comply with arrangements made by the agent in respect of fire precautions, refuse storage and disposal
take care not to hinder in any way the agent in the performance of his duties
take reasonable care to avoid damaging anything which the agent is under obligation to keep in good repair.
