When a landlord rents a unit, they ensure that it is safe and healthy to live in. They create a “Warranty of Habitability,” or a promise that the home is safe to live in. If a home becomes unsafe to live in, renters can ask their landlords to fix the issue quickly and make their home safe again.

Examples of habitability issues that could make a home unsafe include:

  • Plumbing issues
  • Electrical issues
  • Water or sewage issues
  • Heating issues
  • Broken windows or doors
  • Serious mold issues
  • Serious health code violations
  • Other issues or conditions that affect health or safety
