Question of the week

System - Wednesday, March 8, 2017

Question: I have heard that if the condo I rent is uninhabitable the tenant can withhold rent. What constitutes uninhabitable?

Answer: A residential rental unit is uninhabitable if there is a condition on the premises which substantially interferes with the health or safety of the residents and occupants. However, it the tenant was the source of the uninhabitable condition, they are still obligated to pay the rent.
