The act states that the property must be fit for human habitation when the tenancy begins and that the landlord will keep the property fit for habitation throughout the tenancy.

    Section 11 of the Landlord and Tenant’s Act also covers the landlord’s obligation in regards to repair of a property, and it’s under the laws laid out in this section that the majority of lawsuits against landlords are made.
