Tenant V/s Occupant – What’s the difference?


The terms “tenant” and “occupant” describe individuals living in a rental property. Knowing the difference between a tenant and an occupant is important and can help landlords and property managers enforce necessary rules and agreements for individuals living in a rental. Additionally, it can help tenants and occupants understand their responsibilities while living in a rental home. That said, rental owners must find responsible tenants who will respect and care for the property for the entire tenancy. As such, having a comprehensive property management team with a thorough screening process is a must to ensure top-notch tenants.

When it comes to rental housing, tenants and occupants aren’t necessarily the same. For instance, tenants sign a legally binding contract with the landlord and are responsible for paying rent and following lease terms. However, an occupant is simply authorized to live in a rental with the landlord’s permission. As such, they sometimes have different responsibilities or protections than tenants
