IMPROPER SERVICES WITHDRAWAL

Was this information helpful?
Yes No

Improper service withdrawal by a landlord under landlord-tenant law refers to the unilateral termination or withdrawal of essential services or utilities, such as water, heat, electricity, or maintenance, that are essential for the tenant’s habitability and enjoyment of the rented property.

A Legacy Amenity That Was Historically Included, Even If Absent From the Lease Terms, May Become An Implied Term of the Lease As Per the Estoppel by Conduct Principle. Withdrawal of a Legacy Amenity Is Usually Unlawful. Such actions are typically considered unlawful and can result in serious legal consequences for the landlord. Landlords are generally obligated to provide and maintain these services throughout the tenancy, and withdrawing them without proper cause or notice may lead to legal action by the tenant, including seeking damages, rent abatement, or even termination of the lease agreement. Proper adherence to landlord-tenant laws is essential to ensure the rights and well-being of both parties and to maintain a healthy landlord-tenant relationship.
