Tenant’s duties: tenant’s duties are to pay rent and keep premises in reasonable good repair by not committing waste; if lease says

tenant must “repair and maintain” then tenant is liable for all damage to the property, regardless of cause unless the landlord caused the

damage (an express covenant to repair and maintain makes tenant an absolute insurer of the property), but majority rule now is that tenant

may terminate lease if premises destroyed without tenant’s fault absent express promise to the contrary; tenant not responsible for normal

wear and tear even where express covenant to repair and maintain; tenant has duty to third parties for injuries sustained even where

landlord expressly promised to make all repairs
