More renter options
I will note that the two alternatives of the tenant for self-repair or reduction of rent are not of course the only alternatives of the tenant.
These alternatives are additional alternatives among the other alternatives that the tenant has towards the landlord in this situation.
After all, the landlord is in a state of breach of the lease, as long as he has not repaired the damage.
The tenant is faced with the two alternatives in question, as well as the possibility of suing the landlord for enforcement and cancellation of a contract, in addition to compensation.
As with any breach of contract. Section 23 of the Lease Law provides that: “The remedies given to the parties under this chapter are intended to add to the provisions of the Contracts (Remedies for Breach of Contract) Act, 1970, and not to derogate from them.”
