An implied part of every rental contract is that the unit must be maintained in a habitable condition throughout the lease term. Failing to do so can harm tenants and create legal headaches for landlords that end up costing them much more down the road. Join us for an informative panel discussion covering relevant state law, case law, common breaches, and how landlords can be proactive.
