Description

BA 260 WEEK 5 LANDLORD LIABILITY,

Landlords have a responsibility to keep rental properties in safe condition. For example, a landlord should not rent a house with serious electrical problems that may cause a fire. This does not mean that rental property must be in perfect condition. A tenant usually cannot demand that a landlord replace carpet merely because it is stained or starting to wear out. The implied warranty of habitability requires a landlord who leases residential property to furnish the property in a habitual condition, meaning that it is safe and suitable for people to live in. This requirement is initiated at the beginning of a lease signing and remains active for the duration of the lease. Generally a landlord is not liable for any injuries that occur on the premises because the landlord is under no duty to make premises safe. However, a landlord can be liable if the injury occurred in a common area, the tenant was injured by a latent defect the landlord knew of and failed to warn the tenant about, the landlord undertook the task of making a repair but failed to complete the repair with reasonable care or the premises are leased for public use.
