Are tenants responsible for light bulbs in a rental property?


  1. Standard (ever day) light bulbs may be considered to be consumables by tenants and as such the tenant would be responsible for replacing them provided, they were working at the commencement of the tenancy. Non-standard light bulbs (the likes of security light bulbs, halogen bulbs and fluorescent tubes) and light bulbs that are difficult to reach because of their height or position are generally considered to be the landlord’s responsibility.
