Decorating A Rented House

Per section 65 (1) (a) of the South Australian legislation that is concerned with tenants of rented properties, the Residential Tenancies Act 1995 (SA), a person who is renting a house or other residential property possesses the right of being entitled to quiet enjoyment of the house or other property that are rented, and it is incumbent upon the landlord to respect this right. This means that a landlord is not permitted to unnecessarily interfere with the tenant’s life in the property that they are renting, excepted in a few specific circumstances which are defined in the Residential Tenancies Act 1995 (SA).

In accordance with section 72 (6) of the Residential Tenancies Act 1995 (SA), a person letting out a residential property, or a person who is acting as their agent, are only permitted to visit a house, unit, apartment, or other property that they are letting out between eight in the morning and eight in the evening on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, or Saturdays, except for public holidays. On public holidays, it is not permitted for the person who is letting out a residential tenancy to visit a tenant in their home under any usual circumstances. It should be noted that all Sundays are considered to be public holidays in South Australia.

However, it is of course permitted for the person who owns a residential property that they are letting out to prevent his or her tenant from making permanent or long term modifications to the property, such as putting custom printed wallpaper, painting the house, installing solar panels and so on, and other modifications that will permanently affect the house or other property that is being let out as a residential tenancy.

Thus, if people who are renting the house or unit that they live in wish to brighten up their living space and make it their own, they must stick to non permanent and reversible decorating options, which could include removable wall murals. The great thing about peelable decals for decorating walls, no matter whether you rent or own your own home, is that you are able to change the look of your living space whenever you want, making it possible to decorate your home to the prevailing aesthetic and style without having to worry at all whether this form of decoration may later become dated and tired looking.

Wall stickers have been, in particular, a long time favourite for decorating nurseries and children’s bedrooms, because they are then able to be removed and replaced as the child grows older. Popular themes and motifs for stickers and decals that are placed on children’s bedroom or nursery walls include popular cartoon, nursery rhyme, and fairy tale characters, numbers and letters, and the like. These can then be easily removed as they become age inappropriate for the child who is living in the bedroom.
