Tenants and their guests should be able to count on the fact that their apartment, townhome or home does not pose a risk of harm. Landlords, like all other property owners who invite the public onto their property, have a responsibility to maintain the property in a sufficient manner that tenants and guests are not at risk of injury from any property defects.
Unfortunately, too often property owners may fail to make repairs that are necessary or they may opt for a cheaper, less safe means of repairing a defect. In other situations, a landlord might fail to properly monitor the structural soundness of his or her property. A defect may go undetected until it is too late and someone has been injured.
Common defects to an apartment building or other rental property that can create injuries include:
- Defective stairs
- Defective balconies
- Ceiling collapses
- Swimming pool issues
- Inadequate lighting
- Inadequate security
- Broken gates/fencing
- Defective elevators
