In  approximately 45 out of 50 states there is an Implied Warranty of  Habitability (iwh) in residential leases.The warranty provides that a lessor is required to keep the leased premises safe and habitable.  This means the lesssor  has a duty to repair various problems that may arise in a tenancy, such as;  a broken window,  a broken door,  defective dish washer, defective garbage disposal, etc.While the lessor is not required to make repairs to peeling paint or other cosmetic issues,  a smelly carpet or insects in the apartment are the lessor's duty to fix.One exception, however, is if the lessee purposely breaks something.In this situation the lessee is responsiible for any repairs needed.
