Section 54 – Right to occupy without interference from landlord
179.Where a term of the contract incorporates this provision without modification, a landlord must not interfere with the contract-holder’s right to occupy the dwelling. This is also known as the contract-holder’s right to ‘quiet enjoyment’ of the property. This does not prevent the landlord carrying out any repairs. It means a landlord must not act in a way that affects the contract-holder’s right to live in their home without interference from the landlord on a day-to-day basis.
