1. In California, every lease or rental agreement contains an “implied warranty of habitability”—meaning that landlords are responsible for ensuring the unit is safe for human habitation priorto leasing the unit and during the unit’s lease period should any issues arise that would affect habitability. Interestingly, tenants are responsible for ensuring that any shared areas of rented or leased multifamily properties are clean and safe—such as hallways—and not the landlord, which is different than most other states. Landlords do, however, need to keep all other common areas (grounds, community gardens on the rental property, pools, etc.) safe and clean. Landlords are also required to ensure that the property complies with any and all building codes and housing codes as they relate to the safety of the building and/or the health of the residents. Be especially mindful of this as a landlord, as many of the major cities in the state have stricter requirements here than the state law does....
