Abstract

Examines the Texas Supreme Court’s case Kamarath v. Bennett. The Court in Kamarath held that in any residential landlord-tenant relationship, even one that is at will, there is an implied warranty that the dwelling is habitable and fit for living. The author believes that this decision is in line with social and legal policy.
