Paying rent is not the only responsibility that goes between a landlord and a tenant. The landlord also has the duty to keep common areas properly maintained. This duty stands to protect the tenants from unnecessary injury due to dangerous property conditions. A landlord who negligently fails to maintain the premises can be held liable for the injuries that result.
