    Frequently Asked Questions

    What are habitability standards?

    Habitability standards dictate that you should live in a safe home, and that you shouldn’t suffer from infestations, nonfunctioning utility services, and other conditions that materially impact the tenancy.

    What rights do tenants have over landlords?
    The right to live in a safe and healthy home, with working utility service and free from infestations of vermin or other conditions which materially impact the tenancy.
    Can I sue my landlord for negligence?
    Yes, if your landlord breaches the duty to provide a safe home, allows conditions which create a material risk of fire, fails to repair serious problems, does not conduct adequate pest control, or ignores an order from the city or county to make repairs.
    What’s the fastest way to get my landlord to make repairs?
    Give the landlord notice in writing of all the conditions which need to be repaired. If they do not make repairs within 35 days, notify the Housing Department or Health Department.
