Good Repair Law and Legal Definition

Good repair in landlord-tenant law isn't subject to a precise definition, but is generally a state of repair that will satisfy a respectable occupant using the premises for ordinary uses, but not necessarily a state of repair desired by the tenant. A tenant may expect as satisfactory a condition as another tenant would expect of the same property, but not better. The standard of repair depends on the age and class of building, the duration of the lease, the type of property and other considerations.
