quiet enjoyment

The right to enjoy leased or owned property without disturbance.The covenant of quiet enjoyment is one of the typical warranties made in deeds and leases. Some states will not find a breach unless there has been an actual or constructive eviction of the owner or tenant.Other states are more lenient.Most controversy arises in the context of landlord-tenant disputes,in which the landlord has done something the tenant views as damaging to the tenant's business.Examples include extremely noisy construction on the floor above for an extended period of time;barricades erected in front of a tenant café's entrance,or the landlord failing to furnish heat.
