Bad Rental Housing Podcast

Housing Assistance & Subsidized Housing

Posted on 04/24/2024at8:31 pm

In this episode of What’s the Law Say, Clint visits with housing attorneys Katie Ackerman and Carolyn Beyer. They discuss the warranty of habitability implied in all residential rental agreements in the State of West Virginia, meaning in rental housing there is an expectation that the rental property is safe and in good enough condition for the renter to live. 

This episode discusses what actions would violate the warranty of habitability and what tenants can do when the landlord refuses to make repairs to keep the rental property fit and habitable under West Virginia law. Should you need further assistance in this area, you can contact LAWV at 866-255-4370 to see if your case qualifies for free legal assistance from our attorneys.
