What Are My Landlord´s Legal Obligations?

According to Nebraska law (§ 76-1419) the landlord must maintain fit premises. This includes meeting the standards of the Lincoln Housing Code. In addition, the landlord must make repairs to keep the premises in a habitable condition; keep all common areas of the premises clean and safe, such as hallways, common stairway, parking lot, laundry room, and sidewalks; maintain in good condition all electrical, plumbing, sanitary, heating, ventilating, air-conditioning and other facilities and appliances supplied by the landlord; must provide and maintain receptacles for garbage and provide for its removal; and must supply hot and cold running water and reasonable heat at all times.
