Constructive Eviction

Constructive Eviction occurs when leased property becomes unusable due to the actions or inaction of the landlord, causing the tenant to abandon the property.

The elements of constructive eviction are:

  1. Through the actions or inaction of the landlord,
  2. The whole or a substantial part of the leased premises is rendered unfit for occupancy for the purpose for which it was leased,
  3. Causing the tenant to vacate the premises as though he/she was evicted
  4. Within a reasonable time of the landlord’s interference.
