What Constitutes a Habitable Environment?

California has clear guidelines enshrined in both the civil code and the case law governing habitability in the state:

  • A habitable living space provides adequate shelter with locking doors and no broken windows.
  • A habitable living space must be equipped with working smoke detectors.
  • A habitable living space has no electrical problems or issues with raw sewage.
  • A habitable living space is free from infestation by insects, rodents and other vermin.
  • A habitable living space is one in which a landlord ensures that tenants do not disrupt other tenants by making too much noise, or creating an unsafe environment through the dealing of narcotics.
  • A habitable living space provides effective and workable plumbing.
