What Constitutes a Habitable Environment?

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

  • 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 common areas are well lit and free of trash and debris
  • A habitable living space provides effective and workable plumbing.
