LANDLORD-TENNANT LAW 2 Although the leaking in the roof Is major problem especially since he has had a significant number of items to endure damages because of it, Mr. Roger still have to face reality and be realistic because he entered int a legally binding contract in which he is now obligated to fulfill no matter how drastic the circumstances are or have become. The judges will always say fulfill your obligations first then take further actions if needed.

I do not think the landlord should be held directly responsible for the damages and losses the tenant suffered due to water damages. Whatever damages to the apartment the contract states that the landlord is responsible for is what he should be held liable for fixing no matter how many times it has to be done.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
