A deficient condition is a condition that violates a standard of habitability or a requirement of the rental agreement. The standard of habitability is that the premise must be fit for human habitation in accordance with local ordinances and the rules of the board of health having jurisdiction in that area. Additionally the rental unit must have electrical systems, heating, plumbing, and hot and cold water. The unit must be safe and sanitary and if an air conditioning system is installed it must be kept in an operable condition.
