Welcome back to the Law School Toolbox podcast! Today's episode is another installment of our "Listen and Learn" series, where we review legal concepts and apply them to fact patterns. This time we're talking about a topic from Real Property, and that's constructive eviction.

In this episode we discuss:

  • What is constructive eviction?
  • The Implied Covenant of Quiet Enjoyment and Implied Warranty of Habitability
  • The rules of constructive eviction and how to easily remember them
  • Determining if there is substantial interference by the landlord in the tenant's life or business
  • Analyzing two essay questions involving constructive eviction, from the July 2007 and February 2012 California bar exams
  • Developing an attack plan for Property
