The Legal Effects Of Residential Lease Agreements- A Comparative View Of The Implied Warranty Of Habitability In Civil Law And In Common Law



    (Assistant Professor at Sapientia University, Department of Law, ROMANIA.)


The New Romanian Civil Code introduces the landlord’s legal obligation to maintain the property safe and free from health hazards (implied warranty of habitability). The present article offers an analysis of the concept of housing safety and also presents the historical evolution of the regulations surrounding this concept from the standpoint of two legal systems, the civil law and common law legal system.
