I read somewhere in real property law that a tenant can be entitled to a full or partial rent abatement if he or she can prove he or she has been constructively evicted from a portion (or all) of his or her dwelling. Does anyone know about this? I want to know if this applies to month to month tenancies, and how a tenant would prove that he or she is entitled to partial or full abatement in housing court.
My understanding is that if the conditions are so bad that they present a risk to health, life, safety, quiet enjoyment, the tenant can attempt to make a claim for damages of this kind. But I'm not sure and I'm having a real problem figuring out the case law stuff on this website.
ANy information or links would be appreciated.
