Bill Details

12/18/20
AN ACT TO AMEND TITLE 25 OF THE DELAWARE CODE RELATING TO TENANT'S REMEDIES RELATING TO THE RENTAL UNIT.
This bill increases the amount that a tenant may deduct from rent in order to have necessary work done on the rental premises if the landlord fails to repair or maintain the premises after proper notice. The original amount of $200 was selected at the time that the Landlord Tenant Code was drafted in 1996. The amended amount of $400 reflects inflation of rent and cost of repairs.
