Property we let has a burglar alarm and we have always paid for the annual service of it. Tenant has never used the alarm in the 5 years they have been there. service is now due and we want to stop paying for the annual service.
There is one line in the lease that says 'to set the burglar alarm (if applicable) when the premises are empty'. However we know the tenant does not set and has never set the alarm even if they do go out because they have a cat. Can we stop paying for the annual service and having this under an annual contract when it is never used? Can we advise our tenant (who we do have a good relationship with) not to use it or do we still have to keep paying for something that is not used? Does the NRA have a any wording for this type of thing? Thanks
