Court of Appeals declines to extend duties under Landlord-Tenant Relationships Act to condominiums

The Landlord-Tenant Relationships Act imposes on every landlord of residential property the duty to keep the premises in reasonable repair and to comply with all laws and ordinances.  In Huk v Golfpointe Village C.A., an unpublished Court of Appeals Case, the plaintiff was injured while riding his bike on a condominium road.  He claimed that the gravel and potholes were a violation of the duty to keep the premises in reasonable repair under the LRTA.  The court declined to apply the LRTA to condominiums, finding that the clear language of the act applied only to landlords.
