One of the dilemmas confronting Health Departments at all levels is “Who do we serve notice to when there are significant housing problems?” In most states the landlord/owner is legally responsible for all of the habitability issues related to their rental units; however, the owner can legally charge the tenants for conditions which they caused, including those caused by their guests. Here’s the question for this Module’s discussion. Should the owner/landlord be held legally responsible by health departments for damaged to a rental unit which was caused by the tenant or their guests? (This means that even though the inspector has full knowledge that the damage was caused by the tenant, it is the landlord/owner to whom the abatement notice is issued.) Why does a health department issue a notice to the landlord/owner and not the tenant? Please post your response and critique that of another student with whom your response may disagree. Respond to the TD topic before the conclusion of this Module. TD5 One of the issues which plague local government and military bases is community noise control. This problem is especially a problem in residential areas. Usually, the standard for enforcement is whether or not “a reasonable person is annoyed by an intruding sound.” If so than the intruding noise is deemed to violate nuisance statutes or laws. 1) In your opinion should all noise from amplified sound sources be subjected to the same standard or should the standard vary by type of noise or by specific sources of noise? (Noise is defined as “unwanted sound.”) For example, should noise levels from car sound systems meet the same standards as noise from a “Boombox” at a family gathering.2) Is it reasonable to enforce a community noise standard that does not allow for an intruding sound to be “audible” by the complaining party? Please post your response by conclusion of this Module.
