Permissive Waste Law and Legal Definition
Permissive waste refers to an injury caused by an omission, rather than an affirmative act, on the part of the tenant. It results from a tenant's failure to make normal repairs to property so as to protect it from substantial deterioration. For example, a tenant permitting a house to fall into disrepair by not making reasonable maintenance repairs commits permissive waste.
Permissive waste in houses is punishable where the tenant is expressly bound to repair, or where s/he is so bound on an implied covenant.
