Tenants and their Guests Actions against Landlords - New Jersey Tenant Injury Lawyer
Tenants are owed a duty of care by their Landlords to protect tenants from foreseeable dangers. This duty has been interpreted to protecting tenants from assaults that occur not only on the Landlord's property but also adjoining properties if facts show the injury was foreseeable usually requiring prior similar assaults or injuries. A landlord in a multiple dwelling has the responsibility of maintaining the premises in good repair. However, the landlord's liability for injuries caused by conditions on the property is governed by negligence principles. For a landlord to be held liable for a dangerous condition on the demised premises, he must have known or should have known of the condition prior to the occurrence and had an opportunity to correct it. An exception to this rule is where the landlord created the dangerous condition. A landlord has the duty to exercise reasonable care in maintaining those portions of the premises under his control "in a reasonably safe condition for the use and enjoyment of tenants and their guests." That duty includes "the exercise of reasonable care to guard against foreseeable dangers arising from the use of the premises." Call our office today to discuss your case with a New Jersey Trip and Fall Lawyer. A landlord's duty of care extends to the common areas that remain in his control and to areas inside the tenant's apartment where the landlord has undertaken maintenance and repairs, and includes the obligation to disclose known dangerous conditions in the demised premises.
