Warranty Of Habitability

By on November 1, 2018

The warranty of habitability is an implied promise backed by law that a landlord has to provide a premise that is free from health and safety hazards.

The absence of the mention of this warranty in lease contracts does not mean that the agreeing parties will not be bound by the terms of it.

Tenants who find that a property breaches the warranty can legitimately request for a termination of the contract without incurring any penalties.

This is contradictory to the rule of caveat emptor.

It is therefore a landlord’s duty to keep the premises of a property fit and habitable or he might face legal problems.
