2 WHAT LAWS ARE WE TALKING ABOUT? V.S.A.9: Commerce and Trade Chapter 137: Residential Rental Agreements Landlord obligations; habitability a) Warranty of habitability. In any residential rental agreement, the landlord shall be deemed to covenant and warrant to deliver over and maintain, throughout the period of the tenancy, premises that are safe, clean and fit for human habitation and which comply with the requirements of applicable building, housing and health regulations. Simply put Unit must be clean and in good repair when you rent it out. Codes that Apply: Rental Housing Health Code Vermont Fire Safety Code Wastewater/Water Supply Regulations Local Ordinances You must maintain that good condition throughout the tenancy. Your unit must comply with all applicable codes.
3 IT ALSO MEANS You can t rent a camp, camper, van, bus, tent, teepee, yurt, shed or anything else that doesn t comply with code as a year round rental!
4 4457. Landlord obligations; habitability (b) Waiver. No rental agreement shall contain any provision by which the tenant waives the protections of the implied warranty of habitability. Any such waiver shall be deemed contrary to public policy and shall be unenforceable and void. The law trumps your lease. MEANS Yes, even if the tenant signed it. Your lease cannot require that tenants make repairs OR state that the property is rented AS IS
5 4457. Landlord obligations; habitability (c) Heat and water. As part of the implied warranty of habitability, the landlord shall ensure that the dwelling unit has heating facilities which are capable of safely providing a reasonable amount of heat. Every landlord who provides heat as part of the rental agreement shall at all times supply a reasonable amount of heat to the dwelling unit. The landlord shall provide an adequate amount of water to each dwelling unit properly connected with hot and cold water lines. The hot water lines shall be connected with supplied water-heating facilities which are capable of heating sufficient water to permit an adequate amount to be drawn. This subsection shall not apply to a dwelling unit intended and rented for summer occupancy or as a hunting camp. MEANS The landlord repairs the furnace and hot water heater. If the hot water heater is a rental, the landlord pays the rental fee. The landlord is responsible for providing an adequate amount of safe, drinkable water. Heat Requirements from the Rental Housing Health Code Heat must be available when the outside temp reaches 55º. The heating system must be able to keep all living areas of the unit at no less than 65º, without overheating any one room or area.

21 GENERAL RESPONSIBILITIES Owners 1. No owner shall let to another for occupancy any dwelling, dwelling unit, rooming house, rooming unit or mobile home lot which does not comply with the requirements of this code. It shall be the responsibility of the owner to maintain all premises in compliance with this code. The Vermont Supreme Court has found that Landlords violate the Consumer Protection statute (9 V.S.A., Chapter 63) if they rent a property that the landlord knows is out of compliance.
22 Bisson v. Ward, 160 Vt. 343 (1993) Spring Landlords property was inspected by a government inspector, Landlord was directed to correct the violations Before making the repairs, Landlord rented the unit and promised to the tenant that identified issues would be corrected Fall Government inspector again notified landlord of fire and safety hazards. Tenant stopped paying rent, landlord started an eviction for nonpayment of rent, Tenant countersued for breach of Warranty of Habitability and Consumer Fraud (now the Consumer Protection Statute) Outcome Landlords committed a deceptive act (violation of the Consumer Protection Statute) by renting an apartment that was in violation of law (i.e. outstanding inspection order from a government inspector)
23 CASE EXAMPLES Habitability Violations Birkenhead v. Coombs (1983)* Damaged walls and carpet, nonfunctioning shower and toilet, landlord intentionally disconnected tenant s heat, hot water, and electricity, removed tenant s kitchen stove Hilder v. St. Peter (1984)* - broken window, landlord did not provide key to door, toilet was clogged and would not flush properly, bathroom light and outlet inoperable, water leak from upstairs unit, plaster ceiling fell in, broken sewer pipe in basement Bisson v. Ward (1993) structural and mechanical deficiencies, inadequate heating and plumbing systems, no heat, no hot water, tenant had to use a neighbor s bathroom facilities (property had been inspected and deficiencies noted by government inspector) L Esperance v. Benware (2003) drinking water contaminated with e.coli bacteria, structural deficiencies, electrical hazards, other life safety violations (inspection report had denied occupancy until deficiencies were corrected) *Cases that resulted in the current statutory requirements for the Warranty of Habitability
24 Weiler v. Hooshiari (2011) Warranty of habitability does not extend to amenities that are not essential to sanitation and tenant safety. Issue: Heavy snow and ice fell from the roof of the rental property onto tenant s car, destroying the vehicle. Caveat: Potential liability for landlords does exist as a negligence claim by tenants. However, under this decision, landlords do not have exposure under a Warranty of Habitability claim.
25 TENANT REMEDIES 9 V.S.A Habitability; tenant remedies (a) If the landlord fails to comply with the landlord's obligations for habitability and, after receiving actual notice of the noncompliance from the tenant, a governmental entity or a qualified independent inspector, the landlord fails to make repairs within a reasonable time and the noncompliance materially affects health and safety, the tenant may: (1) withhold the payment of rent for the period of the noncompliance; (2) obtain injunctive relief; (3) recover damages, costs, and reasonable attorney's fees; and (4) terminate the rental agreement on reasonable notice. (b) Tenant remedies under this section are not available if the noncompliance was caused by the negligent or deliberate act or omission of the tenant or a person on the premises with the tenant's consent.
26 For a Habitability Claim: THE LANDLORD MUST RECEIVE NOTIFICATION IN WRITING OF THE DEFECT THE DEFECT MUST MATERIALLY AFFECT HEALTH AND SAFETY LANDLORD FAILS TO REPAIR THE DEFECT WITHIN A REASONABLE AMOUNT OF TIME What is a Reasonable amount of time? It will depend on what the defect is. This is a very fact specific issue. It is not 30 days. For some defects it may be immediately (i.e. smoke detectors), for some defects in may be longer than 30 days.
27 TENANT REMEDIES - Habitability Violation POSSIBLE WITHHOLDING OF RENT INVOLVING TOWN HEALTH OFFICER OR CODE INSPECTOR FILING FOR EMERGENCY RELIEF OF ABUSE ORDER* INJUNCTIVE ACTION *In situations where a landlord turns off an essential utility, the tenants can file in Superior Court for an Emergency Relief of Abuse Order specific to the denied utility.
28 GENERAL RESPONSIBILITIES Owners 2. No owner shall cause any water, sewer, equipment or utility which is required by this regulation to be removed, shut off or discontinued for any occupied dwelling, dwelling unit, rooming house, rooming unit or mobile home lot except for such temporary interruption as may be necessary while actual repairs or alterations are in process or during temporary emergencies. Best Practice Tips: If the utilities are in your (landlord's) name, you cannot have them shut off. Even if the tenant is not paying you the rent or running up large bills with the utility company. Shutting the utilities off on a tenant is considered an illegal eviction. If the utilities are in the tenant's name and the utility company shuts off the service for nonpayment by the tenant, you are not obligated to restore service to the unit.
29 Any tenant who sustains damage or injury as a result of an illegal eviction may bring an action for injunctive relief, damages, costs, and reasonable attorney's fees.
30 GENERAL RESPONSIBILITIES Owners 3. No rental agreement containing any provision purporting to transfer responsibilities between owner and occupant other than as imposed herein, shall be effective for the purposes of this code. Best Practice Tips: This means that you cannot rent a property "as is" or require that your tenant be responsible for repairs.
31 TENANT REMEDIES TENANTS ARE NOT REQUIRED TO COMPLY WITH PROHIBITED CLAUSES EVEN THOUGH THEY SIGNED THE LEASE. 9 V.S.A Attempt to circumvent No rental agreement shall contain any provision which attempts to circumvent or circumvents obligations and remedies established by this chapter and any such provision shall be unenforceable and void.
32 WHEN THE TENANT CAUSES CODE VIOLATIONS TOWN HEALTH OFFICERS AND CODE ENFORCEMENT PROGRAMS ARE AVAILABLE TO HELP LANDLORDS TOO! TENANT S CAN BE CITED BY THE INSPECTOR FOR CAUSING VIOLATIONS. CONSIDER 30 DAY BREACH OF RENTAL AGREEMENT TERMINATION NOTICE. IN EXTREME CASES, A HEALTH OFFICER CAN DEEM A UNIT UNFIT FOR HUMAN HABITATION.
