2:00pm – 3:30pm EST

Habitability claims appear to becoming more and more common. Habitability is an implied warranty or contract, meaning it does not have to be an express contract, covenant, or provision of a contract. It is a common law right of a tenant or legal doctrine. And although there is no concise, statutory definition of the term, there are LOTS of regulations mandating the minimum performance requirements of residential property being rented by owners to tenants.

Learning Objectives

  1. Introduce a framework for conducting a professional investigation of a habitability claim.

  2. Gain a big-picture perspective on handling habitability claim investigations from a building expert perspective.

  3. Review Case Studies of numerous building and project types.

  4. Discussion of options for report formats.

  5. Look at actual project deliverables.
